Franklin Police are investigating two back-to-back robberies committed by a single gunman. At 6:25 p.m., officers were dispatched to the first robbery at the Dollar General, located in the Independence Square Shopping Plaza on Hillsboro Road. While en route to that scene, the call of a second armed robbery came in from the Goodwill store, located next door in the same plaza. In both cases, a black male suspect entered the business, displayed a handgun, and demanded money from the clerks. The suspect fled on foot following the second robbery, and remains at large. Detectives do not believe that he is still in the immediate area. No one was hurt during either robbery.
Witnesses describe the suspect as a light-skinned black male with a beard, wearing a grey and white striped hoodie. The Franklin Police Department is offering a $5,000 cash reward for information in these robberies. Call Franklin Police: (615) 794-2513 or Crime Stoppers: (615) 794-4000 with any information.

An Atlanta woman was arrested over the weekend after a credit card fraud alert and quick-thinking victim led police to her Cool Springs hotel room. Franklin Police responded to the Embassy Suites Saturday morning after an Alabama woman’s credit card company detected fraudulent activity on her account. The victim, who was still in possession of her card, was surprised to learn that an apparent cloned card was being used to pay for a hotel room in Tennessee.
Officers found 26-year-old Chloe Cartwright of Atlanta in that hotel room, along with several store gift cards, pre-paid credit cards, receipts, and nearly $1,500 in cash. Cartwright is formerly from the middle Tennessee area. Charged with Identity Theft and Fraudulent Use of a Credit Card, Cartwright is free on the $12,500 bond set by the Magistrate. She is due in court on October 6. An investigation is underway that could result in additional charges. Had it not been for the credit card company fraud alert and quick-acting victim, Saturday’s arrest would not have been possible.

Detectives in Franklin are investigating a substantial and unusual burglary at a Cool Springs business. Employees of the AT&T store, 3021 Mallory Lane, discovered the break-in shortly after 8am, when they were arriving for work. Caught on camera, three masked felons can be seen heavily damaging the inside of the business, breaching doors, breaking cameras, and working together to pull off what appears to have been a highly-planned burglary.
The burglars first pried open the front door to an adjacent nail salon. Once inside, they made their way to the bathroom where they used tools to bust through a shared wall. Once inside the phone store, the suspects moved with precision seen only in cases involving very experienced criminals.
Dozens of smartphones, tablets, and other items were stolen. A complete inventory is underway, but losses were initially estimated in the tens of thousands of dollars. The burglary is believed to have occurred sometime around 4:30am. Anyone who may have seen something suspicious around that time is asked to contact Franklin Police. A reward of up to $1,000 is available for information, by calling Crime Stoppers: (615) 794-4000.
