A report of suspicious activity at a Franklin motel last week led police there to arrest a man on drug charges and gun charges involving an assault rifle.
According to a statement released Monday, Franklin police arrested 21-year-old Robert N. Wilson at a motel at 1307 Murfreesboro Road in Franklin around 1 a.m. last Wednesday, after officers responding to the suspicious activity tip said they spotted an AK-47-style assault rifle in the room while talking with the four occupants.
A subsequent search of the room turned up a loaded pistol, as well as marijuana and digital scales, police said.
Wilson, of 246 Wisteria Drive, is free on a $25,000 bond after police charged him with possession of a drug for resale, possession of drug paraphernalia and two counts of unlawful possession of a firearm.
He is due in court on Dec. 9.
