Graves flowers for sale.

A THIEF stole flowers from a cemetery and sold them in city centre pubs.

But Dundar Akyar was finally spotted by the caretaker.

He called police - and they arrested him at a bus stop after following his wet footprints from City Road Cemetery in Sheffield, South Yorks.

They found 50 fresh roses in his bag.

Akyar, 47, who lives in a hostel, failed to appear before Sheffield magistrates, who found him guilty of theft and issued a warrant for his arrest.
