Franklin Police and Galleria Security Recover $36K in Stolen Merchandise

from The Franklin Police Department

In just 30 days Franklin Police worked with store security teams at the CoolSprings Galleria to recover $36,000.00 in merchandise shoplifted by thieves. Six plain-clothes officers from Franklin Police Department’s Flex Team concentrated on Franklin’s Cool Springs area during operation “Not in our mall,” which ran from Black Friday to Christmas Eve. The operation, aimed at safeguarding shoppers and arresting criminals, netted 68 shoplifting arrests – 53 of which were felonies.

“Using a combination of plain-clothes police officers in unmarked cars and uniformed officers, we set out to keep shoppers safe this Christmas,” said Chief Deborah Faulkner. “We also wanted to send a very strong message to criminals: Not in Franklin, and not in our mall.” Franklin Police are working closely with the District Attorney’s Office to prosecute offenders arrested during this operation to the fullest extent of the law.
