Blooming cheek! 200 red roses stolen before Valentine’s Day from florist
- Credit: PA
A sneak thief stole 200 single red roses worth £1,000 from a Sudbury florists shop.
The blooms were in two boxes taken from Juniper Flowers overnight on Monday, February 11.
Owner Anne Jones said: “It seems a delivery I was expecting came sooner than it should have done so they were left outside overnight.
“The thief must have seen them and decided it was an easy way to make a fast buck around Valentine’s Day.”
Anne said the roses would have sold for £5 each but their loss would not hit trade at what is one of the busiest times of the year.

“It’s not going to affect the business as I’ve got plenty of stock in, but it’s a shame that someone should do this,” she said.
“Sudbury is a lovely place, all my customers and the community in general have been very supportive since they heard what had happened.”
