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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
