TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- It will be a happy Valentine's Day for a Tucson florist shop as well as many of its customers.
 
Tucson police say they recovered thousands of dollars' worth of flowers on Friday after burglars made off with money and a large, refrigerated moving truck from Roses and More.
 
Police say they found the truck a short distance away from the business. More than 150 pre-made bouquets and 100 buckets of roses were still inside.
 
Authorities say the refrigeration unit was broken so officers began filling patrol cars and even a prison transport vehicle to help transport the flowers as soon as possible.
 
Police have not identified any suspects.
