Midwest City, Oklahoma (SafeCITY) - Sharon Lain, a 51-year-old Midwest City woman, was arrested after she allegedly robbed a McDonalds with underwear on her face.

Authorities say Lain donned a blonde wig and attached a pair of underwear to her face with yellow paperclips before walking up to a McDonalds drive-thru.

Investigators say surveillance video showed Lain reaching through the window and then stealing money from an unattended register.

Lain, who has earned the moniker "Underwear Bandit" was apprehended at her home after investigators received a tip.

A search warrant served on her residence turned up items used in the burglary as well as methamphetamine and marijuana.

Lain reportedly confessed to the crime and admitted to having worked as a night shift manager for McDonalds before she was fired last month.

She reportedly told detectives that she planned to use the stolen money to 'hit it big' at a local casino in order to have her water turned back on.

Lain was booked in the Midwest City Jail and charged with second-degree burglary, possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession of paraphernalia and illegal trespass.
