At 1:05 Tuesday morning, officers responded to the Cheswicke Farms Subdivision, after several residents there reported a prowler looking into car windows and entering unlocked cars. Horn honking caused by car alarms rousted neighbors and caused them to look outside. With the help of those neighbors, Franklin Police caught up with the suspect on Logans Circle. Twenty-year-old Luke Barrett, of Franklin, was arrested and charged with Auto Burglary, Drug Possession, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Barrett is free after posting a $10,500 bond; he is due in court 12/18/2014 at 1:00 pm.
Franklin Police credit alert citizens, unafraid to get involved, with Barrett’s quick arrest. Police urge residents to lock their car doors – even when parking in their own driveways.
