Franklin Co. Sheriff investigates theft ring

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Franklin Co. Sheriff, along with several surrounding counties, are investigating what appears to be a professional theft ring.

According to the Sheriff, a string of recent thefts have significant similarities.  The Sheriff says suspects will break into cars at schools and take checks and ID’s of teachers.  Then, a woman involved in the ring reportedly uses wigs to match the hairstyles on the ID’s and cash the checks.
