Giving other people's money to robbers

Q: There was an armed robbery at my house. The robbers demanded money. My mother keeps my brothers, father's and my money all together. She gave them everything that was there. She now wants to know if she owes this money to us since she gave it to them

A: She will not be responsible.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
