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.

A description of the suspects is not yet available.

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.”
