Police in Florida are seeking a man who stole $250,000 in jewelry from an antique retailer.

The suspect hid behind a couch in Gannon’s Antiques and Art Center until after closing time, WINK-TV reports. Watch the news video below.

The man forced his way out of the building, according to the report.

Store Owner Dean Gannon told WINK he never imagined a thief would take this approach.

“Now I’m looking for locations like that in my store that someone could [hide],” he said, “and we will just eliminate them.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

Gone Fishin’ (Thanks to Wilkerson)

Whether you want to go fishing — or enjoy some of the other good things life has to offer — you can take a cue from Jim Adair and choose Wilkerson to run your retirement sale. After 38 years in business, Adair decided it was time to enjoy some free time. His Missoula, Montana store, Adair Jewelers, will stay in business but without him at the helm. It was the perfect opportunity to call in the experts in retirement sales. Adair says he spoke to a lot of people who have done retirement sales to help him make his decision and he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson seemed to have the best set up, the best organization, the most current marketing of any of them,” he says. “If you want to run a successful sale, you have too much money on the line to be screwing around with trying to do it yourself.”
