Jewelry Dealer Ambushed and Robbed Outside Florida Store

The thieves took a backpack and a suitcase.




A jewelry dealer was robbed last week outside a store in Pompano Beach, FL.

Security footage shows three assailants ambushing the victim Tuesday afternoon. The crime happened outside a jewelry store on East Atlantic Boulevard.

The thieves — one of whom appeared to be armed with a knife — took a backpack and a suitcase, WPLG-TV reports. They left in a getaway car driven by a fourth person, according to the news outlet.

WSVN reports that the incident happened outside Atlantic Jewelers.

Employees at the store said the victim was a jewelry vendor.




When There’s No Succession Plan, Call Wilkerson

Bob Wesley, owner of Robert C. Wesley Jewelers in Scottsdale, Ariz., was a third-generation jeweler. When it was time to enjoy life on the other side of the counter, he weighed his options. His lease was nearing renewal time and with no succession plan, he decided it was time to call Wilkerson. There was plenty of inventory to sell and at first, says Wesley, he thought he might try to manage a sale himself. But he’s glad he didn’t. “There’s no way I could have done this as well as Wilkerson,” he says. Wilkerson took responsibility for the entire event, with every detail — from advertising to accounting — done, dusted and managed by the Wilkerson team. “It’s the complete package,” he says of the Wilkerson method of helping jewelers to easily go on to the next phase of their lives. “There’s no way any retailer can duplicate what they’ve done.”
