It took them 90 seconds to smash up the joint and make their getaway.

Three thieves stole an undetermined amount of merchandise from Prime Jewelers inside a Missouri mall, a heist that police say was “well-planned,” KMOV.com reports. According to the article, two of the three men were wearing ski masks and used crowbars to smash jewelry cases. When a store employee tried to stop them, one of the robbers sprayed him with mace. Another employee and a security guard – whose radio was stolen so he couldn’t call for help – were also sprayed. The incident lasted about 90 seconds. “[The robbers] knew they had to go in the closest entrance and exit quickly, they had a vehicle outside ready to pick them up.

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.”
