When they watched the security cameras they saw a white Hyundai Sonata pull up to the drive-thru to place an order. The business was closed so instead of ordering food the old-fashioned way she helped herself to some cash inside, among other things.

Cross was inside the McDonald’s for about 35 minutes. While there she stole money, a purse, some food and some Happy Meal toys. She tried to be a careful thief by attempting to disable the security cameras and wiping her fingerprints from the scene.

After finding out she was a wanted woman, Cross turned herself into police on Thursday.
