Halifax police have arrested a man and woman they say stole lottery tickets and then proceeded to cash them in.

Police say they made the arrests after the pair stole tickets from a convenience store and left in a taxi, which was located the next day. They say they found the lottery tickets the accused had tried to hide in the cab and that their investigation later linked the pair to 11 other lottery ticket thefts.

Dwayne Kenneth Wright, 34, of Dartmouth, and 23-year-old Hayley Anne Margaret Johnson of Halifax, each face numerous charges of theft, fraud, and possession of property obtained by crime along with dozens of counts of breach of probation.
