The hunt for two gunmen continues today, following the Thursday night robberies of two different women in Franklin. The first robbery happened at 8:30 pm in a parking lot behind Main Street businesses; the second happened about an hour later at a home in the Sullivan Farms Subdivision.
Detectives are now working to enhance two videos, provided by downtown businesses, containing persons of interest walking around the downtown area prior to the robberies. Detectives believe that the suspects walked in and around several downtown businesses, scouting victims, prior to their first robbery.
Police urge business and homeowners in the Downtown and Sullivan Farms areas with a camera system to take a close look at Thursday’s footage between 7pm and 10pm. Detectives are hopeful that someone’s security camera got a good picture of the suspects before their robbery spree.
The suspects in these robberies were described as young black males who were wearing basketball shorts, and fled in a small maroon SUV. Franklin Police are offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the identification and arrest of these suspects. Anyone with information is urged to call.
There are three options for reporting a tip in this case:
