Police arrested six people they believe were involved in robbing jewelry stores in Michigan and Ohio.

For the most part, the suspects used rental vehicles in the robberies, but in one case a stolen vehicle was also involved, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Among the robberies:

  • Jan. 13: Helzberg Diamonds, Auburn Hills, MI
  • Jan. 22: Kay Jewelers, Lansing, MI
  • Jan. 24: Sparkles Jewelry, Sterling Heights, MI. Police made the arrests after this robbery and recovered $170,000 in jewelry taken from the store.

The arrests were announced by the Troy Police Department.

Officials with the Eaton County Sheriff’s Department say the same group appears to be connected to six robberies in all, according to C&G Newspapers. Five of the suspects were charged with armed robbery, and one was charged with unarmed robbery as well as resisting and obstructing.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
