An 18-year-old female is facing two counts of aggravated robbery after police said she robbed a tanning salon in East Brainerd at gunpoint.
Police said Brittany Herman, of 6414 Edgmon Dr., confessed to the June 9 holdup at Urban Tan, 8115 E. Brainerd Road.
The victim said she was behind the counter when a black female came in, pointed a handgun at her and demanded money. She said the robber pushed her to the side and took $60 from the cash register. She then ran out of the store.
The victim said she saw the woman's face and recognized her as someone she may have seen before.
She said prior to the robbery the manager had received several text messages from Ms.
Herman asking how many people were on duty and if they only take cash.
That led police to Ms. Herman, who came to the police station and gave the statement.
The victim made a positive identification of her.
