Police continue investigating into more than a dozen auto burglaries in Franklin.
The break-ins occurred over the last two weeks during the overnight hours.
"We've had upwards of a dozen auto burglaries in apartment complexes, subdivisions, places where there are a lot of cars concentrated in small areas," said Lt. Charles Warner with the Franklin Police Department.
In each of the cases, the vehicles were left unlocked overnight and the valuables left inside were stolen.
"The number one thing that we tell people to prevent becoming this type of victim is to simply take your valuables in with you or lock your door," Warner said. "If you don't do one of those two things, what those thieves see will soon be theirs."
Franklin Police are circulating a crime alert to remind residents to lock their doors and how to share information anonymously.
If you have any information about the crimes, call Williamson County Crime Stoppers at (615) 794-4000.
