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.”

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
