The ringleaders recruited financially desperate men for their cause.

Nine men have been accused of carrying out 10 smash-and-grab robberies across Southern California in which they stole $6 million in jewelry, the Daily Breeze reports.

Authorities said the ringleaders of the operation “recruited young, financially desperate men to carry out the robberies, promising them huge sums of money, but later paying significantly less.” Seven of the men have already been arrested, with two remaining at large.

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
