Walker Chevrolet is located at 3940 S. Carothers Parkway.

Seven high-end vehicles valued at approximately $671,000 were stolen over the weekend from Walker Chevrolet, located at 3940 S. Carothers Pkwy. in Franklin.

Officers with the Franklin Police Department were summoned to the business just before 6 a.m. on Monday after an arriving employee found that a glass door at the business had been shattered. Once inside the business, thieves obtained keys and key fobs that started seven vehicles, including a Corvette valued at approximately $150,000.

It appears that portions of the fence were cut to gain access to the property and to drive the seven vehicles away. Surveillance video indicates that the heist happened on Sunday.  

Franklin police are not releasing any video at this time.

Detectives are working with police in Fayetteville, where similar thefts were committed at two dealerships on Saturday.

There is a cash reward for information that helps lead to an arrest in this case. Call Crime Stoppers at 615-794-4000 or submit an anonymous eTip.
