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.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
