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

David Heyman and his wife drove past their business, David Hayman Jewellers, on a Sunday and noticed the power was off, 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 Department 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.

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.
