Cinematic soldiers cause stir in Franklin

April 24, 2012

A group of 12 men who appeared to be armed and donned swastika-adorned military gear in Franklin on Sunday turned out to be less threatening than originally thought.

According to the police report:

A caller reported seeing 12 males putting on military gear with swastika banks on their arms and carrying weapons near the wooden bridge on the Oak Leaf Bike Trail in the 6000 block of West Puetz Road a little before noon.

Officers responded to the area and found the subjects were filming a movie and the weapons were all fake.

The subjects were advised next time they film to post a sign so it does not alarm others who are on the bridge.

Correction made at 10:15 a.m. on April 25 to update location of where this incident happened.
