Thieves cut through a wall to enter a jewelry store in Salado, TX, and take $500,000 of merchandise.

Two suspects cracked the safe during the burglary at Salado Creek Jewelers, KWTX-TV reports. The crime occurred early Sunday.

The suspects also took a handgun from the safe, according to the news report.

KXXV-TV reports that the suspects wore masks and gloves.

Fox 44 News reports that the two men are believed to have “dug through an outside wall of the store in the 100 block of North Main and into the safe early Sunday morning.” That’s suspected to have happened between 2:30 a.m. and 4:30 a.m.

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
