Broken-Hearted Flower Thief Filmed Legging it From Shop by Local News

By Gary Cutlack on at

A Polish film crew managed to capture a crime unfolding live in the background of their shot, as a man walked away from a shop with a bunch of flowers at a suspiciously brisk pace. Because he was stealing them.

After he makes it out of shot we see a man and woman, presumably the shop workers, come out through the same door while looking rather braced for action, no doubt preparing to apprehend the thief and take back the flowers by force if necessary. But he was long gone.

The flower criminal was later captured and named asĀ Andrzej Czapka, who told police: "I'd broken up with my girlfriend and I wanted to win her back with some flowers but I had no money." [Gawker]
