A FEMALE armed robber dubbed the 'buxom bandit' has pleaded guilty to holding up a Gold Coast service station and will be sentenced for the crime.
Tonee Walker, 22, made international headlines when CCTV footage emerged of her wearing a low-cut top to rob the Arundel service station in July.
The crime even inspired a hit Taiwanese animation cartoon, complete with a big-breasted Walker bounding into the service station on a kangaroo.
A court heard Walker told friends she planned to give the middle-aged male service station attendant "something to look at" before robbing him at knifepoint.
A committal hearing was to have been held on Monday in Southport Magistrates Court, but Walker pleaded guilty to the armed robbery.
She was remanded in custody and will be sentenced in Southport District Court at a date to be fixed.
