Man caught stealing roses on live TV

A Polish man who'd just broken up with his girlfriend suffered another blow when he was caught on live TV stealing roses to try to win her back.

Andrzej Czapka decided the best way to get back with his partner was to give her a bunch of flowers but he didn't have any money.

So he decided to steal some flowers from a florist in Lomza, according to the Austrian Times.

Mr Czapka's was filmed pinching the roses on a live TV news report that was taking place outside the flower shop.

After being caught by police when he was identified by hundreds of people, the lovesick thief said he had not spotted the camera.

"I'd broken up with my girlfriend and I wanted to win her back with some flowers but I had no money," he told police. "I didn't even see the film crew."
