According to Franklin County Sheriff’s Office on March 16, 2017 at about 5:43 a.m. deputies were dispatched to the Circle K convenience store located at 408 S. Hwy 185, Sullivan for a report an attempted theft of an ATM machine.
A man wearing a black hooded coat or sweatshirt, black ski mask, black gloves, and tan pants entered the store and attempted to remove an ATM using a dolly hand cart.
