Police Looking for Home Invasion Suspects

The Franklin County Sheriff’s office has received calls for several burglaries in the Union and Washington areas. Houses were entered normally at the rear of the residence and jewelry and small items were taken. It appears that the suspect or suspects did not spend a lot of time in the residences. The burglaries occurred in the morning and mid day. Citizens in the area should be extra vigilant and watch for suspicious vehicles unknown to the area. People should also report individuals who may come to their door asking directions, looking for individuals, missing animals or other questions. If you experience a similar occurrence, do your best to obtain a vehicle or person description or license number and contact the Sheriff’s Office or your local law enforcement as soon as possible.
