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.

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.
