Franklin, TN – Officers responding to a burglar alarm activation this morning made the quick capture of a pharmacy burglar. Franklin Police Officers were dispatched to Walgreens, at 1415 Liberty Pike, in the McKay’s Mill Subdivision at 1:40 this morning after operators at a security monitoring center received the alarm. Those operators used surveillance cameras inside to watch the burglar, giving timely information to police.
Responding officers found the front glass door to the pharmacy damaged and standing open, and the security glass leading to the pharmacy area shattered. Officers spotted a vehicle leaving the area and stopped 20-year-old Robert Brigham of Columbus, OH. Investigators developed evidence connecting him to the burglary during the investigation.
Today’s technology combined with private-public crime-fighting partnerships make things more precarious for criminals today, than ever before. “The monitoring company, responding officers & detectives, and the police dispatchers that got them there did an outstanding job,” said Chief Deborah Faulkner. “Working together, their quick actions took a felon off of Franklin Streets.”
Brigham, charged with Burglary and Theft, is being held in the Williamson County Jail on a $71k bond. He is due in court 07/24/2014 at 1:00pm.
