A truck backed through the front of a jewelry store in Memphis, TN, and $70,000 in merchandise was stolen.

The crime at Cunningham’s Watch and Jewelry Repair took place at about 3 a.m. Friday, WREG-TV reports.

Security footage showed that the truck was a white Ford F-150, WMC reports. The news outlet noted that three men appeared to enter the business on foot. (Scroll down to see the video.)

Among the items taken were four custom chains worth $6,000 each, along with $10,000 in costume jewelry, according to WMC.

Just a few hours after the burglary, community members helped owner Craig Cunningham to clean up. He hoped to reopen within two days. The business has been operating since 1986.

“There’s really nothing I can do other than put some barricades across the front of the building but I doubt I will do that,”  Cunningham told WREG.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
