The arrest of three Franklin teens has led authorities to items stolen in five home and vehicle break-ins, police said.
Police continue to investigate and are looking into as many as eight break-ins or attempted burglaries committed in two neighborhoods off U.S. 31. The prosecutor’s office is considering charges against two 19-year-olds and a juvenile who had some of the items taken from the homes and vehicle.
The break-ins happened in the Northpointe and Branigin Creek neighborhoods on the north side of Franklin. In each case, the break-in happened at night, and the burglars got in through a screen or window they removed, cut or opened, Franklin Police Department Detective Scott Carter said.
The time the break-ins are happening is bold and dangerous, since there is a greater chance residents will be home at night than during the day when people are often at work, he said.
