Toledo woman charged with robbery calls police from McDonalds, turns herself in

Virginia Wilcox knew the authorities were looking for her.

She called Deputy U.S. Marshal Rodney Hartzell and said, "I'm sitting at McDonld's right now. Come pick me up," Deputy Hartzell said.

The Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force, with members who had already been to five houses today with Michigan State Police looking for the robbery suspect, met Wilcox at the fast-food restaurant at West Alexis Road and Lewis Avenue at about 1 p.m.

Once she was arrested, she was taken to the Lucas County jail; she is being held on an aggravated robbery charge pending arraignment in Toledo Municipal Court.

Police allege that she robbed an In & Out mart, 5830 Douglas Rd., at gunpoint Friday night.
