It was reportedly England’s largest burglary.

Police in London have arrested a 57-year-old man in connection with a 2015 burglary in which $20 million of jewelry and cash were taken.

A half-dozen men have already been handed sentences of between six and seven years each in connection with the crime, described as “the largest burglary in English history,” The New York Times reports. They were in their 60s and 70s.

The valuables were stolen from Hatton Garden Safe Deposit in the city’s jewelry district, according to the newspaper.

In a press release, Metropolitan Police said the newly arrested man was being held on “suspicion of non-residential burglary.” He was not identified.

He was arrested after a search warrant was carried out at an address in Islington. A number of items were seized from the address, according to the release.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
