Franklin Police are searching for a suspect from a brazen getaway. On December 7, 19-year-old Anthony Gifford, of Nashville, took part in a $4,500 shoplifting at the Franklin Macy’s. Gifford was one of four suspects who managed to make his way to a getaway car after the theft.
When Franklin Police Officers attempted to stop that car, the driver intentionally rammed the police car before fleeing. Franklin Police and Crime Stoppers are offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to the whereabouts and arrest of Anthony Gifford.
Tyasia Butler, 20, of Clarksville, was another one of the suspects who initially got away. She was identified and arrested on Wednesday. Charged with Felony Theft and Shoplifting, Butler is free on the $6,500 bond set by the Magistrate. She is due in court on December 27 at 1:00 pm.
Detectives are working to identify two additional suspects, including the driver of that getaway car, a silver vehicle – possibly a Honda Civic. Additional arrests are expected in this case.
