Icebox Diamonds & Watches in Atlanta was burglarized after masked gunmen tied up a jeweler and his wife in their home, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Cobb County police stated that on Friday, the culprits forced the couple into their home and took the store keys. The couple were not injured.

(The Journal-Constitution described one of the victims as the owner. Other news sources, including WXIA-TV, described him as the manager.)

Two men broke into the Buckhead store at about 11:30 p.m. and spent about two hours there, authorities said. They took jewelry and watches from safes.

The stolen goods were reportedly worth hundreds of thousands of dollars in total. Cash and jewelry were also stolen from the jeweler’s home, according to the Journal-Constitution.

Icebox Diamonds & Watches is known for its celebrity clientele, the newspaper notes.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
