Fake Bomb Placed Outside Jewelry Store with Note Demanding Cash and Goods (Video)

The area had to be evacuated as the bomb squad investigated.




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.

Time to Do What You've Always Wanted? Time to Call Wilkerson.

It was time. Teri Allen and her brother, Nick Pavlich, Jr., had been at the helm of Dearborn Jewelers of Plymouth in Plymouth, Mich., for decades. Their father, Nick Pavlich, Sr., had founded the store in 1950, but after so many wonderful years helping families around Michigan celebrate their most important moments, it was time to get some “moments” of their own. Teri says Wilkerson was the logical choice to run their retirement sale. “They’re the only company that specializes in closing jewelry stores,” she says. During the sale, Teri says a highlight was seeing so many generations of customers who wanted to buy “that one last piece of jewelry from us.” Would she recommend Wilkerson? Absolutely. “There is no way that I would have been able to do this by myself.”
