A security camera catches a thief as she robs a gas station -- all while keeping a smile on her face. Msnbc.com's Richard Lui reports.
A 22-year-old woman dubbed the "buxom bandit" has turned herself in to Australian police, days after she was seen on surveillance video trying to rob a gas station, NEWS.com.au reported.
Tonee Walker gained international attention after a video showing her holding up the business while wearing a revealing low-cut top went viral.
Walker made off with a small amount of money.
According to court documents, getaway driver Alexander Joshua Spinks, 22, told police he had adjusted Walker's top to expose her breasts before she held up the station in Arundel, southeast of Brisbane, on July 2 armed with a knife, NEWS.com.au reported. Walker said she wanted to give the middle-aged male attendant "something to look at," according to the report.
The surveillance video of Walker's robbery attempt even inspired a Taiwanese animation that shows her going into the gas station on a kangaroo and stuffing cash into her cleavage.
After turning herself in on Friday, Walker was charged with robbery and theft, and appeared in court Saturday.
According to NEWS.com.au, police opposed granting bail, saying the woman was already on probation for drug offenses.
Walker was denied bail and remains in custody until her next court appearance on Aug. 20.
