Pharmacy burglar allegedly caught in the act


According to the Franklin Police Department, officers responding to a burglar alarm activation Saturday morning made the quick capture of a pharmacy burglar.

Franklin officers were dispatched to Walgreens, in the McKay's Mill Subdivision at 1:40 a.m. after operators at a security monitoring center received the alarm.

According to police, those operators used surveillance cameras inside to watch the burglar, relaying that information to police.

Responding officers found the front glass door to the pharmacy damaged and standing open, and the security glass leading to the pharmacy area shattered.

Officers say they spotted a vehicle leaving the area and stopped 20-year-old Robert Brigham of Columbus, OH.

Investigators developed evidence connecting him to the burglary during the investigation.

Brigham, charged with Burglary and Theft, is being held in the Williamson County Jail.
