FPD makes arrests in connection with burglary string

Published 2:57pm Wednesday, September 18, 2013

FRANKLIN—While a Wynnwood Drive homeowner was away Tuesday, four burglars broke into the home at approximately noon through a back entrance.

Alert neighbors observed the suspicious people go behind the house, and hearing glass break, they alerted officers. Police responded at 12:11 p.m. and caught two suspects who fled a house on Homestead Road. The other two suspects are still at large.

Investigators were able to link the apprehended suspects to three other burglaries that were committed Monday night at the Elm’s Foundation on Clay Street, the Parker and Crumpler Law Office on North Main Street and a residence on the 700 block of Clay Street.

Joseph Orlando Foster, 18, 517 W. Second Ave., Franklin, was charged with four counts of burglary, four counts of destruction of property and one count possession of burglary tools.

A 17-year-old male juvenile of the 500 Block of Laurel Street, Franklin, was also arrested and charged with two counts of burglary.

The juvenile offender was remanded to Tidewater Detention Center; Foster was taken to Western Tidewater Regional Jail on $5,000 secured bond.

There are outstanding warrants for Khary Deshun Smith, 20, of Franklin. Anyone who knows the location of Smith, or any other details of this crime, can call Franklin Police at 562-8575 or Franklin Crime Solvers at 562-8599.

Officers were able to determine that the suspects broke out the glass in a rear door and entered the house, ransacking several rooms.

    Scum. later on, when they run out of luck, doing this again, after they are let back onto the street, and they get shot and killed by a vigilant homeowner, we can see the blubbering “baby momma” on WAVY-10 saying, “he was a ‘good’ boy.” Bet it.

    A big thank you to the alert neighbors for observing the crime and notifying the police dept. We need more support from the community throughout the city to report suspicious activity in our neighborhoods. This will not stop these thugs, but it will slow them down. Thanks to the FPD for apprehending the suspects, job well done.

    They will do a week in jail at best, our correction system does not work anymore. Best we can hope for is the next home they break into the homeowner is waiting for them with a shotgun.
