Franklin authorities have arrested a local convenience store clerk suspected of taking more than $15,000 from his place of employment.
Dennis Ray Mason, 54, of Hoffman Lane, was charged on May 29 with one felony count of larceny by an employee and one felony count of embezzlement. The charges stemmed from an incident reported on December 16 claiming that more than $10,000 went missing from the Automatic Teller Machine located inside the Village Trader convenience store, located on Hwy. 28 north of Franklin.
According to the incident report made at the time, Franklin Police Department Captain Steve Apel was provided with business deposit records by store owner Abdul Waliany.
