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.

Put Your Trust in Wilkerson

To do business successfully with anyone, you need a certain “comfort level.” That’s something that Phillips Pitts, owner of two Parris Jewelers stores in Hattiesburg, Miss., said he felt immediately when he first talked to Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes. He was just about to launch an anniversary sale. And he chose Wilkerson to handle all the details — from the marketing to the sales floor. “Rick cared what was going to happen to Parris Jewelers,” says Pitts. “Not just during the sale but after the sale.” Would he recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers contemplating a large-scale sale? Absolutely, says Pitts, who says the results “exceeded their expectations.” His trust in Wilkerson has only grown after the numbers came in. “They were interested in me fulfilling and what I need to fulfill to make my company better.”
