A US woman working at a McDonald's outlet in Washington spotted her stolen SUV in the drive-thru of the restaurant and called police, who arrested the driver.

The SUV was initially stolen from an apartment complex and hours later the woman 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, Washington, at the McDonald's. A male was also in the car with York, but he was not arrested.

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