Police in Texas have seized about $2 million in jewelry that they believe was stolen.

The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office recovered the goods from a store in San Antonio called Joyeria Internacional, the San Antonio Express-News reports.

Deputies had spent time undercover at the jewelry store, according to the article. The investigation began after a half-dozen victims, all of whom had hired the same house cleaner, reported that they were missing jewelry.

The housekeeper has not been arrested, according to the Express-News.

The jewelry was found in a safe at the store, which is located on the city’s South Side. In all, more than 11,000 items were recovered.

“It’s believed people at the store were knowingly buying stolen jewelry,” said James Keith, spokesman for the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
