Police in Midtown Manhattan attempted to do a “felony car stop” when the driver sought to get away “by driving on the sidewalk and speeding past a group of people hanging out in front of Pergola restaurant,” according to the news report.

Police tried to stop the BMW by firing several shots at it. No one was injured.

A short car chase ensued, with the suspects abandoning the BMW after about a block. One suspect fled on foot and the other was taken into custody, according to CBS New York.

In one alleged robbery, police believe the suspects took $4 million in jewelry from people leaving the Tao Downtown restaurant.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
