$1.7M Robbery: Jeweler Offers $50,000 Reward for Information

Thieves tied up two workers and made another get jewelry from display cases.




A jeweler in Waco, TX, is still reeling after his store was robbed of $1.7 million in jewelry on June 17.

Brad Boozer of Boozers Jewelers said the store is “offering a $50,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of these people and gets my merchandise back,” KWTX-TV reports. The reward would come from his own pocket, not insurance, he said.

In the gunpoint robbery, a man and woman wearing masks entered the store just before closing on a Saturday. They bound two workers and made another get jewelry from display cases.

The store was left with almost no inventory. Boozer said he is rebuilding with new inventory, and the store is open for business.

Police said they do not yet have any leads in the case.

Wilkerson: “They Feel Like Family”

Newton’s Jewelers in Fort Smith, Ark., was a true institution. But after being at the helm for most of his life, owner (and descendent of the original founder) Kelly Newton decided it was time to retire. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale. “I’ve known the owners of Wilkerson for a long, long time. I felt at home with them,” he says. The final retirement sale was just a “blast” and the Wilkerson sales team made it so very simple and straightforward, says Newton. Would he recommend Wilkerson to others? Absolutely. “They’ve done incredible work,” says Newton. “They feel like family.”
