FBI captures alleged bank robber


The Knoxville Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Police Chief Sterling P. Owen IV of the Knoxville Police Department, and Tim Hutchison, Knox County sheriff, announced the arrest of Lila Strickland, 39, for the robbery of the Suntrust Bank at Northshore Drive and Pellissippi Parkway Wednesday, Dec. 6.

Gary Kidder of the FBI said that according to witnesses at about 9:05 a.m., a black female with blonde hair entered the Suntrust Bank at 9541 S. Northshore Drive.

She displayed what witnesses described as an old dirty revolver which may not have had handgrips on it.

She took an undisclosed amount of money and fled in a black four-door (extended or crew cab) Silverado pick up.

Witnesses on the scene obtained the license plate of the vehicle.

The arrest took place about thirty minutes later when units of KPD and KCSO stopped the described vehicle.

Strickland was afforded an initial appearance before a U.S. Magistrate Judge [Dec. 6] in Knoxville.

The suspect allegedly has addresses listed both in Louisville and Rockford.
