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.”

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.”
