BLAINE — A Twin Cities man wanted for allegedly murdering his former boyfriend and business partner in Arden Hills last month may have robbed a Blaine bank at gunpoint Sunday afternoon. According to police the picture of a man who robbed the TCF bank matched the description of 44-year-old Lyle "Ty" Hoffman.
