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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
