Jaime Mendoza, 36, and Maritza Guerrero, 31, both of Anaheim, were taken into custody after authorities saw them commit at least one theft and deliver the stolen goods to a mobile home, law enforcement officials told the paper.

At the mobile home, investigators found merchandise stacked “floor to ceiling” and subsequently arrested Yolanda De la Rosa, 48, and Jaime De la Rosa, 55.

Additional merchandise was found in four self-storage units, and authorities needed multiple trucks to haul it away.

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.”
