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.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
