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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
