2 Charged In Robbery At Tanning Business

Two people are in custody following an armed robbery about 9:45 p.m. Monday at Glamour Tans, at 2130 E. Andrew Johnson Hwy.

Charged with robbery are Doris Lee Cutshaw, 33, of the Heatherwood Apartments, and Kimberly D. Lafollette, 45, of 3167 Sunnydale Road.

Both were taken into custody by Greeneville police at the Andrew Johnson Inn shortly after midnight, Officer Kevin Guinn said in a report.

The weapon, which was later recovered, is a paintball gun, the report said.


The 21-year-old woman working at the business told officers that a man and woman came into Glamour Tan about 6:30 p.m. and "inquired about tanning visits," the report said.

They returned about 9:45 p.m., inquired about a single tanning visit, and asked to look at a tanning bed, the report said.

While looking at the tanning beds, the man "raised his shirt and showed the victim a handgun that was tucked in his front waistband."

"The male told the victim that he was not afraid to kill her, and he demanded money," the report said.

The victim went to the cash register and gave the man about $230 from the register.

"The victim states, after the male took the money, he grabbed her cellphone and took it out the door with him," the report added.

The victim asked the robber not to take her cellphone, "and as he walked out the door, he threw (it) down" in the parking lot.


Police, including a police dog, responded minutes later and began a search of the area.

The track led officers to the Greene Villa Motel. A man and woman matching the description of the suspects were seen outside a room, but were determined not to be the suspects.

A call concerning a suspicious car that was backed in about 10:15 p.m. on North Rufe Taylor Road at the Faith Temple Church led to the arrest of a man on possession of drug paraphernalia, but the suspects were not found there.

"Officers continued to canvass the area at the hotels and numerous hot spots where drugs are known to be purchased at," the report said.

Officers showed photographs of the suspects to employees at local hotels. Shortly after midnight this morning, a tip came in from the Andrew Johnson Motel, at 2145 E. Andrew Johnson Hwy.


Guinn's report said officers "tactically approached the room, where I observed a male look out the blinds whom I know to be Doris Lee Cutshall."

Officers called out verbal commands, and the room occupants "came out at gunpoint," the report said.

Cutshaw and Lafollette were taken into custody without incident.

Kimberly Lafollette's daughter was also in the hotel room, the report said.

A search of the room turned up clothing allegedly worn in the robbery, the report said.

A plastic bag "with the remnants of an ice-type substance and rolling papers were found on a wooden table in plain view," the report said.

A K-9 dog entered the room and alerted to a bag of suspected marijuana located between a dresser and a mini refrigerator.

Other clothing allegedly worn during the robbery was located at the McDonald's on East Andrew Johnson Highway, the report said.


Both suspects were interviewed by detectives, and Lafollette "admitted to them committing the robbery," the report said.

The weapon allegedly used was found "in close proximity to Glamour Tan in a small wooded area," the report said.

"The firearm was found to be a paintball gun,"the report added.

Cutshaw and Lafollette were also charged with possession of Schedule II and VI drugs.

Judge Kenneth Bailey Jr. set bond for Cutshaw and Lafollette at $90,000 and $87,000, respectively. They have first scheduled appearances on Wednesday in General Sessions Court.

Officers were able to look at video footage of the robbery shortly after it occurred to get an accurate description of the offenders, the report said.
