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: “They Feel Like Family”

Newton’s Jewelers in Fort Smith, Ark., was a true institution. But after being at the helm for most of his life, owner (and descendent of the original founder) Kelly Newton decided it was time to retire. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale. “I’ve known the owners of Wilkerson for a long, long time. I felt at home with them,” he says. The final retirement sale was just a “blast” and the Wilkerson sales team made it so very simple and straightforward, says Newton. Would he recommend Wilkerson to others? Absolutely. “They’ve done incredible work,” says Newton. “They feel like family.”
