NYC Jeweler Accused of Money Laundering

Authorities say he bought items from a theft crew.




Authorities say a New York jeweler acted as a fence for a group that robbed other jewelers.

Stanislav “Steve” Yakubov has been indicted in Manhattan federal court on charges of money laundering, the New York Post reports. Yakubov is a jeweler at the Jamaica Colosseum Mall.

Two men carried out a series of attacks on jewelers in the New York City region in 2019 and 2020, taking goods worth $2 million in total, according to federal authorities. They allegedly targeted the jewelers at their homes.

Yakubov “allegedly bought stolen goods from the thieves three times,” the Post reports, citing the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Yakubov denied the allegations, according to the Post. He reportedly “claimed the thieves he allegedly dealt with were former customers.”

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
