Wichita Falls Police say they have found and charged a woman they say was the get-a-way driver in the robbery of a fast food restaurant last summer.
24 year old Cristin Cierra Murphy is charged with aggravated robbery and her bond is set at 200- thousand dollars.
Officers say two masked men robbed the Whataburger on McNiel on June 27, one carrying a shotgun or rifle and the other a handgun.
The pair took cash from employees and purses and wallets from customers, one threatening to start shooting if the manager did not come out of the restroom and unlock the cash boxes.
One suspected robber was arrested a few days later.
The District Attorneys Office says that suspect provided them the names of the other robber, and the get-a-way driver.
Police say under questioning, Cristin Murphy admitted to police that she picked up the two robbers in the parking lot of Big Lots after the robbery and that she was given some of the stolen money.
