Jewelry Thieves Attack Employees with Pepper Spray in Phoenix

About $4,000 in jewelry was reported stolen.




Thieves pepper-sprayed two sales associates at a Phoenix jewelry store.

The crime happened on April 2, the Jewelers’ Security Alliance reports.

“At 7:30 p.m. the two female suspects pictured above were in a retail jewelry store looking at chains and pendants, and decided to buy several items,” according to JSA. “However, when one sales associate tried to process their credit card, the transaction wouldn’t go through.

“As the sales associate swiped the cards again, one of the suspects pepper sprayed both sales associates. The suspects then grabbed the jewelry items and the credit card and fled.”

12 News identified the store as Alvarado Jewelry inside the Mercado de los Cielos in West Phoenix. About $4,000 in jewelry was reported stolen.




When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
