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.

The family has run the jewelry store for three decades, according to the Daily News.

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.”
