An attentive citizen picked up the phone and reported what they saw, and made a difference this week. At noon on Wednesday, Franklin Police received a call from someone who witnessed a woman in Cool Springs placing black electrical tape on her license plate, making the numbers and letters appear different than they actually were.
Officers located the car in the Target parking lot and arrested 25-year-old Teresa King of Nashville. King, charged with Altering/Forgery of Plates and Driving on a Revoked License is free on a $4,000 bond.
It is not uncommon, in general, for suspects who have committed or are about to commit a crime to disguise or remove their license plate. Altering a license plate is a Class E Felony. Franklin Police commend the witness who reported this crime, and encourage residents who witness criminal or suspicious activity to contact police.
