Acting on a tip, the Oakland County Sheriff's Office Fugitive Apprehension Team tracked the woman to Waterford, where she was arrested without incident on Sunday, according to a preliminary report. Evidence from the robbery was also recovered at the address, according to deputies.

The woman is held in the Oakland County Jail pending charges.
