Post Date:09/15/2017 6:00 PM


Detectives in Franklin are investigating a substantial burglary that occurred sometime after 11 pm, Thursday night, at Crown Jewelry & Gifts on Murfreesboro Road.

Owners arrived to find the store in total disarray after thieves cut through the roof to enter the store. Once inside, the thieves are believed to have spent several hours using a circular saw to cut through drywall and into the vault after defeating several security measures that were in place. The loss is in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

If you have any information or may have seen anything that could help solve this crime, call Franklin Police or Williamson County Crime Stoppers. There is a reward of up to $1,000 being offered for information.
