It was like “Mission: Impossible.”

Thieves wearing night-vision goggles stole $100,000 worth of jewelry from a jewelry store on Staten Island.

The burglars first entered a vacant business next door in order to get into Fortune Jewelers at about 3:50 a.m., the New York Daily News reports.

The criminals were seen on surveillance video “wearing head-to-toe dark clothes, heavy-duty gloves, masks and night goggles,” according to the newspaper.

The owner of the store, who declined to be named publicly, told the Staten Island Advance there were two burglars.

“It was like a job you see in the movies,” he was quoted as saying.

Authorities said the items stolen included gold rosary beads, charm bracelets and cross pendants.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
