Officers with the Franklin Police Department have arrested a man wanted in a string of auto burglaries last summer.

The 21-year-old Murfreesboro man, Richard Hartman, was indicted by a Williamson County Grand Jury Wednesday.

Hartman was charged with 13 criminal counts ranging of auto burglaries and thefts in the Stream Valley, Fieldstone Farms, and Falcon Creek subdivisions in Franklin.

Murfreesboro Police found several stolen items in a Murfreesboro motel room where Hartman had been staying.

Metro Police officers recovered additional stolen items, linking Hartman to the burglaries, from a Nashville motel room.

Hartman was held in Davidson County, and was due in Williamson County Circuit Court on May 20 at 9:00 a.m.
