He noticed they looked familiar.

Tony Markar, owner of Tony’s Jewelers in Denville, NJ, had a bad feeling about three people who walked into his store.

And upon closer inspection, he noticed they looked familiar — he’d seen their pictures in an industry alert about a robbery in New York, NorthJersey.com reports.

He quickly called the local police. As it turned out, the group didn’t try to rob him — they walked out, apparently because the store was busy. Markar has been robbed several times before.

“They don’t want you to have too many people, so nobody is watching over them,” Markar told NorthJersey.com.

Police caught up with the suspects — Josuf Pryce, India Stokes and Bernard Bell — near the store and arrested them. NorthJersey.com reports that they’re “charged with conspiracy to commit theft, conspiracy to commit burglary, hindering apprehension and shoplifting.”

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
