Thieves take florist's Valentine's Day stock

LOUISVILLE, Ohio (AP) -- There's a little less romance for Valentine's Day in this northeast Ohio town.

Thieves have made off with the entire inventory of roses at Catherine Elkins' florist shop.

Elkins says the unromantic criminals broke into her Cottage Floral & Gifts shop early Friday and stole all 400 roses.

They also took vases and decorations. And she can't even fill online orders because they also ran off with her computer.

Elkins says Mother's Day and Valentine's Day are the two biggest holidays of the year for her business.
