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.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
