FRANKLIN COUNTY, Va. (WDBJ) - The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office is looking for two men who burglarized two convenience stores early Tuesday.

The burglaries took place in the early hours of October 20 at the Eagle Mart, at 7645 Hardy Road in Hardy, and the Redwood Express Mart, at 3362 Old Franklin Turnpike in Glade Hill, before the stores opened for the day. Employees from both locations reported broken windows and cigarettes and cash having been stolen.
