Authorities have arrested five people in connection with a series of robberies of traveling jewelry salespersons in the Dallas, TX, area, the Jewelers’ Security Alliance reports. The gunpoint robberies occurred between April and June 2016. In one robbery a salesperson jumped partially into the open window of the suspects’ car, trying to grab back his case. However, the suspects drove away with him hanging out the window, and he was eventually found dead by the side of the road. John Parker, U.S Attorney for the Northern District of Texas, called the five suspects an “extremely dangerous group of robbers” that are “part of a larger, organized South American theft group that has targeted members of the jewelry industry across this nation for a number of years.”

Police say a Miami, FL, man tried to buy jewelry from Kay Jewelers in Canton, GA, using fraudulent identification. Joseph Vanucci has been arrested on a felony count of theft by deception, along with other charges, the Cherokee Tribune & Ledger News reports. Police say the jewelry he tried to buy was valued at $5,000.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
