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.

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.”
