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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
