MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Memphis woman has been arrested after she reportedly drove two boys to rob people at gunpoint.
Police say Lashuna Taylor, 41, is facing several charges, including aggravated robbery, attempted aggravated robbery and contributing to delinquency of a minor.
According to police, two boys tried to rob a man at gunpoint at a Marathon gas station on Getwell Road at around 5:10 p.m. Wednesday.

Officers reportedly checked the area and found the boys. Memphis Police say the boys ran, but officers took them into custody.
The boys reportedly admitted to multiple robberies and claimed Taylor was the one who drove them.
Memphis Police say officers found Taylor at a home on Sharpe Avenue. Police say Taylor admitted to driving the boys around to rob people.
Taylor’s license has reportedly been suspended since May of 2014.
