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.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
