Franklin woman wakes up to burglar during neighborhood crime spree

FRANKLIN, Ind. – A crime spree in a normally quiet Franklin subdivision included heart-stopping moments for a woman who awoke to the sound of somebody breaking into her house Tuesday morning.

Just after 5:00 a.m. Tuesday, the woman called 911 and said she heard pounding, and then breaking glass on the back of her house in the 1500 block of Williamsburg Lane.

The 911 dispatcher urged the woman to stay in her bedroom as Franklin Police officers were being dispatched to the house. The intruder was gone by the time police arrived.

Investigators found a window on the back of the house had been broken and the woman’s purse had been taken from the kitchen table.

“That would be scary to anybody,” said Franklin Police Chief Tim O’Sullivan. “She woke up in the middle of the night to glass breaking. She called 911, but there she is by herself getting ready to face one

Gang’s getaway driver ‘cried’ when he was told what accomplices had done during armed crime spree

A gang of armed robbers targeted golf clubs, cricket clubs and working men’s clubs during a three-month spree in which victims were terrorised and threatened with weapons.

Their getaway driver Liam Worthington, 29, has now been jailed for 13 years and six months after admitting his role in the raids at NINE premises in Bury, Oldham, Ashton, Rochdale and Rossendale.

The dad-of-one cried when he heard the full facts of the robberies, his defence team told Manchester Crown Court.

Worthington transported the gang, which carried out ‘sophisticated and carefully planned’ crimes, the sentencing judge said.

In a number of the incidents, the criminals struck at closing time to ensure the maximum amount of cash was available to be stolen, the court heard.

The first robbery occurred at Walmersley Golf Club in Bury, at about 1am on October 6, last year, when five men wearing balaclavas burst into the club after smashing through the patio windows.
