When staff arrived at John Bead Clearance Outlet in Toronto on Saturday, they were sure the store had been burglarized. Merchandise was scattered all over the floor.

But when they looked at security video, they were surprised to find that no criminals were involved, BlogTO reports. Not human ones, anyway.

The culprit was a raccoon.

The animal fell through a tile in the craft and jewelry store’s new roof. Fortunately, he didn’t take anything, except possibly some trash or snacks.

“It appeared to be a break-in,” the store said in a Facebook post. “Luckily, the thief was caught and we can share video footage of him in case you see him in your neighbourhood.”

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.”
