A woman claiming to be the now infamous "Buxom Bandit" has surrendered to Australian police, according to News.com.au.

Security footage of a voluptuous blonde in a low-cut top robbing a gas station probably made the unidentified suspect one
of the country's "most wanted" criminals. Now, Tonee Walker has turned herself in, claiming to be that thief.

Walker, 22, was charged with one count each of armed robbery and stealing last Friday, just four days after the July 2 heist in Australia's Gold Coast. She was in court on Friday.

Her alleged getaway driver, Alexander Joshua Spinks, also appeared in court on Friday after turning himself into police, according to NineMSN.

He allegedly told authorities that, moments before the robbery, Walker exposed her breasts so that the gas station clerk had "something to look at."

The "Buxom Bandit" became a viral phenomenon after security video of her wielding a knife in a provocative outfit emerged on the Internet. She was mocked by some outlets for not covering her face and for wearing only one glove, thereby potentially leaving behind fingerprints.

The Daily Mail reports that police opposed bail because Walker is on probation for drug offenses and her "erratic and violent" behavior appeared to be escalating.

The judge agreed and denied bail.

She is also believed to be battling drug and alcohol problems, the Mail reported.

Walker's Facebook page includes the June 28 status update, "Tonee Walker: Is keen to get absolutely drunk tonight! Who's coming."

On July 4, two days after the early-morning robbery, a status update reads, "Im selling my tattoo gun guys who wants it :)."

Chris Rossiter, Walker's lawyer, said his client and her family were embarrassed by all the publicity the robbery has garnered.

"She’s aware of all the notoriety she’s received – it wasn’t something she set out to achieve,’ Rossiter said. "It’s been devastating for the family. It just seems out of character."
