A bouquet of 24 red roses worth £100 was stolen on Valentine’s Day from a supermarket in Sprowston.
An offender entered Tesco on Blue Boar Lane and left the store with a bouquet of two dozen premium Grand Prix roses worth £100 without paying.
Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident which happened between 12.40pm and 1pm on February 14.
PCSO Jan Moore says: “There were only two bouquets of this type in the store as part of the Valentine’s Day promotion and after noticing that one bouquet was missing, security staff checked the tills and then reported the theft – the second bouquet was purchased the following day.”
Police would like to speak to a man who was seen acting suspiciously in the area at the time of the incident. He is described as white, approximately 6 foot tall of slim build with short dark hair, wearing a black round neck jumper, blue jeans and white trainers.
