(Scroll down for video) A heartless female thief was seen on video stealing a bouquet of roses that an elderly man placed at his wife’s grave, police in the United Kingdom said.
Now, police are hunting for the thief who stole the 51 roses from the cemetery.
75-year-old Maurice Powell, was left heartbroken when his late wife, 70-year-old Sandra, lost her battle with cancer.
Powell said that he bought his wife 51 roses to represent the years of their marriage, 1 rose for every year, and put in a memorial area at the Robin Hood Cemetery.
However, when he returned the next day, the flowers were nowhere to be found. Powell said that he can’t understand how someone can stoop so low.
Surveillance video of the robbery, which took place around 3:30 p.m., was given over to the West Midlands Police, but so far, no arrests have been made.
