On July 31, 2021, at approximately 10:13 PM the Franklin Police were notified of an alarm at Vallee Jewelers located at 68 Main Street.
Officers responded and observed the front door smashed and requested more units to the scene. Officers made entry to the building to check for suspects and found none still on scene. There was major damage to several display cases inside the store, and jewelry on the floor.
The Franklin Police K9 Unit was dispatched to scene and began a track which led down several streets and ultimately appeared to end where the suspect entered a vehicle and left the area. Assistance from the Massachusetts State Police Crime Scene Services Unit was also called into to help process the scene.
Initial estimates place the losses in excess of $10,000.
At this time we are releasing video in the hopes that a member of the public will recognize the suspect. We ask that anyone with information contact the Franklin Police Detective Division at 508-528-1212.
