Crime update from Franklin alderman Kristen Wilhelm

Recently, the city of Franklin and other municipalities have seen an increase in residential Burglaries.  In some cases, a Burglary is being committed by suspect(s) because the opportunity presented itself, because a homeowner left their garage door open, residence unlocked, etc.  Franklin neighborhoods have also experienced forced entry Burglaries where an exterior door is defeated, window is pried open, or a patio door is smashed in order to gain entry. The time frame in which these incidents are occurring are during the day and evening hours.

 Please remember to lock your vehicles at night, close your garage door, and make sure all entry ways that lead into your residence are locked.  Additionally, leave your exterior lights on as this illuminates your residence and makes it harder for a thief to conceal themselves.  Lastly, report suspicious people, vehicles, or noises while it is occurring.  The non-emergency number for the Franklin Police Department is (414) 425-2522.

On Monday, 09/10/12, the Franklin Police Department arrested a 19 year old for Burglary to a residence.  A citizen witness called the police department after they observed a suspect leaving a residence in the 3300 Block W Minnesota Ave.  The suspect taken into custody had warrants for his arrest involving previous Burglary investigations with other jurisdictions. Property was recovered and the suspect was taken into custody by dayshift officers at Franklin PD.  Thank you to the citizen who called in the information.
