A man placed a fake bomb outside a jewelry store in Maryland, along with a note demanding jewelry and cash.

It happened at Sergio’s Fine Jewelers in Ellicott City. Authorities recently released surveillance video of the incident. See a news video from WJZ-TV below.

The state fire marshal’s bomb squad determined that the object was not a real bomb.

According to the Jewelers’ Security Alliance: “While the suspect didn’t proceed further with the crime, and no loss occurred, the area had to be closed down by the bomb squad for the afternoon while investigating the package.”

The Howard County Police Department is offering a $1,500 reward for information that leads to identifying the suspect.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
