The crime involved three armed suspects.




Suspects fired on a witness after robbing a jewelry store in Mountain View, CA, police said.

No injuries were reported.

Police stated:

Around 11:50 am on Friday, Jan. 27, Mountain View dispatchers received calls that a jewelry store located on the 1900 block of Latham Avenue was being robbed. According to initial reports, three armed suspects walked into the store and took an undisclosed amount of money from the register. The suspects also took personal belongings from both customers and employees in the store. No one was injured during the robbery.

The suspects then ran out of the store and got into a car driving northbound onto Rengstorff Avenue. A witness of the incident attempted to follow the suspects in their own car and as they approached Rengstorff Avenue at the entrance to Highway 101, the suspect car stopped and multiple suspects began shooting at the witness’s car, hitting it at least once. The driver was not injured.

The suspect car drove away after the shooting and has not been located. The entrance to Highway 101 is currently closed while our teams investigate. We also have teams at the jewelry store, which is also closed at this time.




This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
