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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
