Driver Slams Into Indiana Jewelry Store

A driver slammed his vehicle into Martin Binder Jeweler in Valparaiso, IN, and police believe he was intoxicated, the Chicago Tribune reports.

The Valparaiso Police Department said on its Facebook page that Christopher Youngblood, 52, of Michigan City, was traveling eastbound on U.S. 30 when his vehicle “crossed the median, drove across WB US 30 and then off the roadway and into the jewelry store.” They responded to the jewelry store just before 6 a.m. Thursday.

Youngblood was transported to Porter Regional Hospital and treated for minor injuries.

“Youngblood displayed signs of intoxication and a warrant is being requested for the charge of OWI by police,” police said.

The Tribune reports that damage to the jewelry store was minor. On its Facebook page, Martin Binder Jeweler said it anticipated opening at noon Thursday.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
