Four men wearing masks broke through the doors.

A jeweler who was in 2011 the victim of a $15 million heist has been hit by thieves again.

Four men wearing masks stole jewelry from Provident Jewelry in Jupiter, FL, before daybreak on Wednesday, the Palm Beach Post reports. They used tools — sledgehammers or axes — to break through the doors, and then they broke into 15 jewelry cases.

Store owner Rob Samuels is still determining the value of the merchandise that was taken, according to the newspaper.

When the store was victimized in 2011, thieves made off with $15 million in jewelry. A judge sentenced Pedro Luis “El Loco” Enriquez to 15 years behind bars for his role in the burglary.

Marvin Lewis, who apparently enjoys spending time near the rich and famous, is now trying to avoid spending time in jail. He’s defending himself in court against charges that he was involved in jewelry store robberies, the Austin-American Statesman reports. He faces 16 felony counts. Lewis has been photographed with a wide variety of celebrities, from Ed Sheeran to Madonna.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
