Franklin, TN – On August 5th, we asked for the public’s help with identifying a woman in a surveillance video suspected of stealing two valuable rings from a Franklin antique store. Tips began pouring in after local media ran her picture in the news. Today, that suspect is behind bars and detectives have recovered the jewelry that she stole.
Christiana Haefs, 29, of Nashville, was identified after citizens recognized her from store surveillance pictures. “Cameras are everywhere,” said Franklin Police Sergeant Charles Warner. “Today’s technology, combined with media and citizens who care, create quite a force to be reckoned with.” In this case, all three worked together to return stolen property to its rightful owner, and put a thief behind bars.
Haefs, charged with two counts of Felony Theft, remains jailed on a $50,000 bond. She is due in court on 08/21/2014 at 1:00pm.
