A jeweler in Yorba Linda, CA, thwarted suspected burglars who he believes cut power to his store.

David Heyman and his wife were driving past their business, David Hayman Jewellers, on a Sunday when they noticed the power was out, CBS Los Angeles reports.

Heyman became suspicious and called police.

The Jewelers’ Security Alliance recently issued a “code red” amid a string of jewelry-store burglaries in which the culprits cut power lines. The organization said it has identified 50 cases of such burglaries at U.S. jewelry stores in 2019.

“The special task force that called me a half-hour later was convinced it was these burglars coming again,” Heyman was quoted saying.

Orange County Sheriff’s Deputies hid in the store, and at about 3 a.m., their wait paid off. Two suspects “came in through the front door with a crowbar, damaging two cases, and bolted when they saw the deputies,” according to CBS Los Angeles.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
