Franklin Police are investigating a series of auto burglaries in two communities. During the overnight hours of Sunday night into Monday morning, at least seven unlocked vehicles were burglarized on Eden Park Drive, Pebble Springs Drive, Stoney Point Lane, and Keswick Grove Lane in the Ashton Park Subdivision – a gated community. Cash and other valuables were taken. While none of the stolen items were in plain view, criminals know where we often hide things. When they looked under seats, center consoles, and glove boxes, this suspect found exactly what they were looking for.
This rash of auto burglaries follows four reported burglaries of unlocked cars in the Sullivan Farms Subdivision, eight miles away, late Friday night or early Saturday. Safe, trusting communities make ideal targets for auto burglars and other criminals. Despite Franklin’s low crime-rate, residents are urged to remove valuables and lock their car doors.
Residents in both subdivisions are asked to review home surveillance system footage for clues that might help in these investigations. Anyone with information can call Franklin Police at 794-2513.
