This was a professional heist.

Two burglars looted Yuriy’s Jewelry Store in Pittsburgh after they cut a hole directly into the back of its safe from outside the store, WPXI reports. According to the TV station, the crooks broke into a vacant restaurant space next door and then drilled a hole through a brick wall it shared with the jewelry store. They missed on their first attempt, but on the second attempt found the store’s safe, which contained watches, gold jewelry and diamonds. The store’s manager is reviewing surveillance video in hopes it can lead to an arrest.

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.
