FRANKLIN—If you can identify the person in the picture to the right, you could receive up to $1,000 from the Crime Line if your information helps lead to an arrest or prosecution.

This person is suspected of breaking into a Southampton Meadows home this past week after being caught on camera at the same residence back in April. Southampton County Sheriff's Office is looking to identify the suspected burglar.
This person is suspected of breaking into a Southampton Meadows home this past week after being caught on camera at the same residence back in April. Southampton County Sheriff’s Office is looking to identify the suspected burglar.

This suspect is alleged to have broken into a Williams Street trailer home earlier this month and taken an air conditioner, food and drinks, said Maj. Gene Drewery, spokesman for the Southampton County Sheriff’s Office.

The Southampton Meadows residence had been hit previously in April, and that’s where the photo comes from, but the homeowner did not report it until July 7 after the second burglary. The homeowner had a camera system going in his trailer.

Drewery said that identifying this suspect could potentially lead to more burglaries being solved.

The Sheriff’s Office can be reached at 653-2100 or you can remain anonymous by calling the Crime Line at 653-2900.

    The sand on my lollipop comes from the sand kicked on it at City Hall. A kicking and screaming 6 yr old certainly gets my attention and if that’s what it takes; so be it.

    I haven’t even received a thank you from either department for the part I played in capturing a suspect in the commission of a burglary. Good luck in collecting a $1,000 dollars. Did someone state in the previous article, 691 pieces of stolen property identified, 23 burglaries solved ?
    I identified a suspect in 2010 that lead to the arrest and prosecution of a suspect, solving 6 burglaries in the City of Franklin. No thank you; what so ever!

    Hope so. Self contained minidvr cameras are getting pretty reasonable in price. Everybody should have one in the house. I have them there and in my vehicles.

      I was having trouble with theft at home so now I have D-Link webcams all over the house and watching the driveway. They email pictures to my phone whenever there is motion. Very affordable and effective. Punk Thieves don’t like it when you email them pictures of themselves in the act.
