Four people have been arrested in connection with a July home invasion robbery in Bowling Green, KY.

The Bowling Green Police Department reports that it took Nicolas Enrique Cruz-Palacios and Javier Nunez, both of Old Hickory, TN, and Jeffery M. Weisman and Patricia Weisman, both of Bowling Green, into custody.

The Jewelers’ Security Alliance reports that in the home invasion, three men pretending to be delivery drivers knocked on a Bowling Green residence/home office, and an employee let in the men and was met with a gun. The employee was knocked to the ground, tied up and sustained a broken bone.

The suspects are accused of taking a safe containing antique jewelry valued at $1 million, according to JSA. The Bowling Green couple were former wholesale jewelers who knew the victim. JSA reports that they are accused of setting up the robbery.

“During the home invasion the robbers spray painted an exterior surveillance camera, while another wore a portable Wi-Fi jammer during the robbery to disable the security cameras,” JSA states.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
