Jeweler Fires on Suspects in California Robbery

One shot hit the ground and another struck the store window.




A jewelry store owner in Riverside, CA, opened fire as his business was robbed on Saturday, scaring the two suspects away.

The suspects entered Geneva Jewelry and used hammers to break jewelry display cases, KABC-TV reports.

The owner then got his gun from a back room and began shooting in an attempt to chase the suspects away, according to KABC. One shot hit the ground and another struck the store window.

Store employee Michaelangelo Torchia told KTLA-TV: “Once they got scared, they fell to the floor. They ran out.”

No injuries were reported in the incident, which happened at about 11 a.m.

The suspects reportedly made off with thousands of dollars in jewelry.




This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
