Teen accused of faking emergency to rob Cobb family arrested

A 19-year-old woman accused of faking an emergency to carry out a violent invasion of a Cobb family’s home has been arrested, according to Channel 2 Action News. 

Cobb police told Channel 2’s Chris Jose that Amanda Tanks was one of three people caught on camera breaking into the Vinings Estates house on March 26. 

A woman, whom authorities believe to be Tanks, can be seen in the video asking for money for an abortion.

The resident of the home and her two children were home at the time and eventually opened the door, at which point two masked men with guns forced their way in.
