Suspect arrested for stealing $50 and dragging woman with car


A local man has been finally been arrested for a New Year's Eve incident in which he robbed and dragged a woman with his car. The incident happened December 31 around 10:30 p.m. when a female and her boyfriend had gone to a local business, Hastings, to buy a video game.

When the couple arrived in the parking lot they saw 23-year-old Jonathan Chase Franco in his vehicle. The female knew Franco, and got out of her boyfriend's pickup truck and walked to his vehicle to speak with him.

The female victim told police she had $50 in her hand at the time to buy a video game. She said that Franco grabbed her arm trying to take the money from her. He then accelerated his car, and drove towards Valley Mills Dr. while the female was caught inside the driver's door window of the car.

Franco kept driving the car in the parking lot, which caused the victim to be dragged by the car.

Once the suspect stopped the vehicle, the boyfriend of the victim went to help the female. A group of 3 or 4 other unknown males got out of Franco's car and began punching and kicking the boyfriend. Franco and the others fled the scene in his car and took the female's $50.

Franco has been charged with aggravated robbery.
