FPD Asking Apartment-Dwellers to be Vigilant; 4 daytime burglaries at 2 complexes, in 2 days

imagesFranklin, TN – Franklin Police are asking apartment complex residents to be on high-alert, following a recent rash of daytime burglaries. On Wednesday, the main doors to two units at an un-gated community were forced open by suspects during the daytime hours. The same scenario occurred again today, when two residents of a gated community in another area of town returned home early this evening to find that the main doors to their units had been forced open. The suspects located and stole valuables from inside three of the four apartments; one was vacant at the time of the burglary. All four units were adjacent to a wood line or other private area, not easily seen by others.

Apartment residents, especially those who are typically home during the daytime hours, are urged to be vigilant – keeping an eye out,  and  immediately reporting anything suspicious to our 9-1-1 Dispatch Center.

Franklin Police have increased patrols, both marked and unmarked, and are working closely with residents and apartment community managers to apprehend the suspect(s) and prevent additional burglaries. If you see something out of the ordinary, please do not hesitate to immediately contact us.

Please redistribute this information to family or friends who reside in any Franklin-area apartment community.

Media and community partners: I will post a more detailed release, with additional information, on Friday, right here at FranklinPDnews.com.
