Officer names painted on vehicles at scene

A man suspected of running a large marijuana-growing operation in Franklin is now a possible suspect in a burglary that occurred at an industrial building, where the names of two Franklin police officers were painted on vehicles, police said.

Police are investigating the break-in at Hurricane Industrial Development, an industrial building southeast of Franklin. The building is owned by Robert Clawson, the same man who owns a building at Hurricane Road and Eastview Drive where an extensive marijuana-growing facility was found on Feb. 22. That building contained 500 marijuana plants, expensive growing lights and a recirculating irrigation system.

Clawson is not a suspect; another person had leased the building since October 2012.
