A man stole money from the cash register at a downtown Franklin cafe.
The man, wearing a brown jacket, took about $70 out of the cash register at Water Street Cafe, 66 S. Water St., at 9:30 p.m. Monday, according to a police report.
An employee was in the back of the store washing dishes when she heard a noise and went to the front. She saw a man leaving the building and discovered that the money in the cash drawer was missing, the report said.
Franklin police are investigating.
