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.

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.
