CORDOVA, TN (WMC-TV) - After spending days under the radar, an apron-wearing woman wanted for robbing a Cordova bank was in police custody Friday.
The woman was wanted for taking over $12,000 from a Regions Bank on Germantown Parkway early Tuesday morning. Surveillance cameras at the bank captured clear pictures of the woman as she robbed the bank while wearing an apron.
Moments later, Lynette Hill tried to walk into the same bank - wearing an apron.
Target wants more of its Memphis-area customers to be able to add beer and additional grocery items to shopping lists that already include the chain’s home accessories and latest fashions.
The Minneapolis-based retailer is in the midst of a $1 billion renovation of about 340 existing stores in 2010, the effects of which can already be seen throughout Target’s Memphis footprint.
The retailer began selling beer at its 5959 Poplar Ave. store in February. And Target has applied for permits to sell beer at two more of its roughly half dozen Memphis stores – at 7697 Winchester Road and 7989 U.S. 64.
