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.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
