Last June, it happened in Franklin. Last week it was Spring Hill. The Spring Hill police believe that a recent motor vehicle break in was the work of a group known as the Felony Lane Gang.

Within the last week, a woman’s purse was stolen from her car. The Felony Lane Gang tries to get as many personal documents as possible to compromise bank accounts and steal money. The group has struck across the country.

“They know what they are doing, that is why they come from other states,” Lt. Justin Whitwell, SHPD, said. “We got a tip from another law enforcement agency that they were back in our area.”

Whitwell warned that people should be aware and careful of what they leave in their cars.

The Felony Lane Gang has been operating in Middle Tennessee since the late 2000s, said Whitwell.
