Burglars stole millions in jewelry from a store in Roswell, GA, in a brazen overnight burglary.

The thieves hit Jason Guven Fine Jewelry, spending eight hours in the store and taking almost all of its merchandise, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The thieves cut power to the alarm system and rappelled from the roof, police said. They remain at-large.

The store owner was quoted staying that when he arrived the next morning, “We saw the displays on the floor, there was a hole in the vault. We were in shock.”

Sean Thompson, spokesman for the Roswell police department, was quoted saying the burglars appeared to be a “professional crew.”

“They cut through cinder block and rebar and crawled into the safe, where they stole an unknown amount of jewelry,” Thompson said.

The store’s surveillance cameras captured images of two of the suspects, but authorities have not yet identified them, according to the Journal-Constitution.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
