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.”

As an IJO member jeweler, he knew he needed an exit strategy if he ever wanted to g the kind of retirement he deserved. He asked around and the answers all seemed to point to one solution: Wilkerson. He talked to Rick Hayes, Wilkerson president, and took his time before making a final decision. He’d heard Wilkerson knew their way around a going out of business sale. But, he says, “he didn’t realize how good it was going to be.” Sales goals were “ambitious,” but even Matthews was pleasantly surprised. “It looks like we’re going to double that.”
