FRANKLIN, Tenn. (WKRN) – A Murfreesboro man has been indicted by a Williamson County grand jury for a string of auto burglaries that occurred last summer.

Richard Hartman, 21, has been charged with 13 criminal counts, including multiple auto burglaries and thefts.

According to a release, Hartman has also been linked to other car burglaries in the Stream Valley, Fieldstone Farms and Falcon Creek subdivisions in Franklin.

Authorities said Hartman was linked to the burglaries after Murfreesboro police identified several items in a Murfreesboro motel room where Hartman was staying, as belonging to Williamson County victims.

Police also recovered additional items from a Nashville motel room.

Hartman is being held in Davidson County and is due in court in Williamson County on May 20.
