Wheeling, W.Va. (AP) -- Linda Contraguerro hopes the man who robbed her wheeling flower shop can read, because she has a message for him.

"Hey jerk, we want our money back," are the words she posted on a sign in front of Warwood Florist Creative Arts & Crafts.

Police are still looking for the man who walked into the shop on Oct. 14 and pointed a gun at a cashier before making off with $150 in cash.

Contraguerro says she's furious about the robbery, especially the fear it's caused her employees to suffer.

She says the neighborhood has rallied around the store, though, and she's taking new security precautions to prevent future robberies.
