The courts will be tasked with determining the fate of 19 people who are set to face trial over their involvement in a $50 million diamond heist at Brussels Airport nearly three years ago, according to AFP, which cites the Belga news agency. The report says that nine have been charged with being directly involved in the theft, and the rest have been charged with hiding the diamonds. A trial date has not yet been scheduled.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
