Post Date:01/12/2019 5:00 PM

Police in Franklin are investigating an early morning carjacking. Shortly before 3:00 am, the victim was parked close to the front of the Mallory Lane Walmart, waiting for his wife who was inside the store. Two black male suspects approached, both suspects produced handguns and ordered the victim to get out. The suspects then fled in the victim’s vehicle.

The stolen vehicle is a 2017 maroon Honda Accord with a Tennessee license plate: 1H87A6. The suspects are black males in their late teens to early twenties. They were wearing all black, with hoodies pulled tightly around their heads in an attempt to conceal their faces.

A cash reward is being offered for information in this case.
