Two Indicted In Tanning Salon Robbery

Grand Jury Also Indicts Others For Forgery, Possession Of Drugs In Jail



A man and woman who allegedly robbed a Greeneville tanning salon last October were indicted Thursday by a Greene County Grand Jury on felony aggravated robbery charges.

Doris Lee Cutshaw, 33, of 3167 Sunnydale Road, and Kimberly Dawn Lafollette, 45, of the same address, were also indicted on two counts each of simple possession of a controlled substance.

Lafollette, Cutshaw and all others indicted Thursday by the grand jury are scheduled to appear for arraignment Friday in Greene County Criminal Court.

The robbery at Glamour Tans, 2130 E. Andrew Johnson Hwy., occurred on the night of Oct. 21.

According to the indictments of Lafollette and Cutshaw, an employee of the business was placed in fear of her life "by the display of a paint ball gun that was used or fashioned to lead (the employee) to reasonably believe it was a deadly weapon."

Cutshaw and Lafollette were taken into custody by Greeneville police several hours after the robbery at the Andrew Johnson Inn. The paint ball gun was also recovered.


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. on Oct. 21 and "inquired about tanning visits," a report by Officer Kevin Guinn said.

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

While looking at tanning beds, Cutshaw allegedly raised his shirt and showed the victim what appeared to be a handgun "tucked in his front waistband," the report said.

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

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

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

The man then threw the phone down in the parking lot.


Police began a search of the area, assisted by a police dog.

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.

"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 on Oct. 22, a tip came in from the Andrew Johnson Motel, at 2145 E. Andrew Johnson Hwy.


Guinn's report said officers "tactically approached the room" and saw a man identified as Cutshaw look out the blinds.

After officers called out verbal commands, Cutshaw and Lafollette "came out at gunpoint," the report said.

A search of the room turned up clothing allegedly worn in the robbery, along with 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.

The indictments of Lafollette and Cutshaw said that 13.51 grams of marijuana and a small amount of methamphetamine were located hidden in the room by a K-9 dog.

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


Also indicted Thursday on four counts of forgery and two counts of theft of property valued over $1,000 was James Carl Dale Hinkle, 24, of 1310 Old Snapps Ferry Road.

Indictments state that in June 2013, Hinkle allegedly cashed checks totaling $1,920 at a local bank drawn on the account of a Greeneville woman, without her permission.

Indictments also state that on July 15, Hinkle allegedly "exercised control" over a 1998 Toyota Camry owned by a Greeneville woman without her consent, and on June 3, exercised control over a 1998 Nissan Sentra belonging to a man without his consent.


Three women were indicted by the grand jury on felony charges connected to the possession of drugs at the Greene County Detention Center.

Brittany Devoti Famiglietti, 24, of 509 Scenic Drive, was indicted on three counts of possession of a controlled substance while present in a penal institution, and one count of possession of legend drugs while present in a penal institution.

Famiglietti was at the county jail on June 30 and allegedly possessed four tablets of Phentermine, one Clonazepam tablet, half a gram of Buprenorphine and 7.5 tablets of the legend drug Gabapentin, according to indictments.

Marie Edith Tweed, 28, of 585 Buckboard Road, was indicted on two counts of possession of a controlled substance in a penal institution.

Indictments state that on Aug. 1, Tweed allegedly possessed eight tablets each of oxycodone and Alprazolam while at the Greene County Jail.

Kerri Lyn Brown, 33, of 4500 Cedar Creek Road, was indicted on a charge of possession of drugs in a penal institution.

An indictment states that on May 5, Brown was an inmate at the Greene County Detention Center and allegedly possessed Alpha-PVP, also known as bath salts.

Separate indictments charge Brown with evading arrest, driving on a revoked license-third offense, driving on a revoked license, criminal impersonation and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Following a traffic stop on May 4, Brown allegedly gave sheriff's deputies a false name and then fled from deputies attempting to take her into custody, indictments state.


Other grand jury indictments, and the charges in each case, include:

* Dayton Allen Cates, 16, no address listed: aggravated rape, burglary and theft of property valued at $500 or less.

* Billy J. Griffin, 53, of 3090 Cedar Creek Road: driving under the influence, driving under the influence-fourth offense, and driving on a revoked license.

Griffin was pulled over by sheriff's deputies for speeding July 18 on the Asheville Highway. He was previously charged with DUI in August 2006, March 2002 and January 2000, according to records. All the charged offenses were in Greene County.

* Crystal Janene Renner, 28, of 333 South Mohawk Road, Mohawk: theft of property valued at $500 or less and simple possession of a Schedule II controlled substance.

* Caleb Michael Roberts, 23, 2360 Westwood Road, Mohawk: simple possession of a Schedule VI controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

* David Lee Shelton III, 28, of 1060 Bolton Road: theft under $500.

* Maxwell Devin Southerland, 30, of 919 Carson St.: delivery of a controlled substance (two counts).

* David M. Whaley, 47, of 149 Little Stone Road, Elizabethton: simple possession of a controlled substance and public intoxication.

* Morgan Elizabeth Woods, 23, of 6580 Old Stage Road, Chuckey: theft of property valued over $1,000 but less than $10,000.
