Dilworth VFW robbery suspect still at large

Authorities have identified a man they believe was involved in the burglary of the Dilworth VFW Post on Thursday.

Felony arrest warrants have been issued for 22-year-old Louis Sky Franklin.

He is still at large but believed to be in the Fargo-Moorhead area, said Jason Hicks, a detective with the Clay County Sheriff’s Office.

Franklin fled on foot early Thursday after Moorhead police pursued the getaway car into north Moorhead and across the river into north Fargo, Hicks said.

The car’s alleged driver, Jorgenia Franklin, 42, of Dilworth, was arrested. Hicks said Jorgenia Franklin is Louis Sky Franklin’s mother. She is being held at the Clay County Jail.

Felony charges had been filed against Brian William Paddack, 28, for the burglary. He was found hiding in a trash bin behind the nearby Slumberland store. He made his initial court appearance Friday.

Anyone with information about Louis Sky Franklin’s whereabouts is asked to contact their local law enforcement agency.
