Copper goods stolen in Lowe’s theft

Workers at Lowe’s in Franklin came into work this week to find a hole in the roof, where one or more burglars had come into the store the night before.

Franklin police are trying to figure out who scaled the building, spray-painted a security camera, cut a hole in the roof and climbed down to a tall shelving unit to gain access to the store.

Store workers are doing an inventory to see what was taken in the unusual, overhead break-in, but employees said it looked like copper pipe and fittings were one of the targets, according to a police report. Police were called about 9 a.m. Monday when workers noticed the hole in the roof.
