LOWER TRURO – Police are investigating after a man and woman were observed stealing cash from a register from a business in Lower Truro.

At approximately 6:15 p.m. on Nov. 25, a man and a woman entered a business and were observed taking more than $1,400 in cash, in large denomination bills from the register.
