FRANKLIN, Tenn. (WTVF) — Two people were arrested by Williamson County Sheriff's Office Deputies on Saturday for mailbox theft.

A man and a woman were spotted checking a mailbox on Southern Preserve Lane in Franklin.

Kelley then conducted a traffic stop and found several packages and mail from residents all over the county inside the car.

47-year-old Clifford Wayne Watkins and 40-year-old Sandra Gail White were arrested and charged with theft of property under $1,000.

They were both released from jail Saturday afternoon after posting bond.

Both have a court date on September 22, 2021.
