A 54-year-old Carroll man is accused of stealing a grocery cart load of flowers that was sitting on the back side of Hy-Vee late last month.

Robert Wayne Arnold was charged last week with misdemeanor theft for the incident, which happened about 12:20 p.m. on April 29.

Hy-Vee, at 905 U.S. Highway 30 on the west side of Carroll, has video surveillance cameras in its parking lots.

A criminal complaint accuses Arnold of parking his van next to the grocery cart and taking all of the flowers it contained.

The flowers were worth about $150.
