— A woman working at a Kennewick McDonald's saw her stolen SUV in the drive-thru of the restaurant and called police, who arrested the driver.

The SUV was stolen from Virginia Maiden’s apartment complex on 4th Avenue Tuesday morning and hours later she saw it in the drive-thru at her work, said Kennewick police Crime Prevention Specialist Mike Blatman.

Police arrested the driver of the SUV, 22-year-old Katherine A. York, of Kennewick, at the McDonald's on West Canal Drive. A male was also in the car with York, but he was not arrested.

Police found a large amount of stolen clothes from JC Penny and Sears in the SUV after York was arrested, Blatman said. Police are investigating the stolen clothes.

York was booked into the Benton County jail.
