They took advantage of the massive distraction.

Thieves took $6 million in goods from a jewelry wholesaler in New York just as revelers waited for the ball to drop in Times Square on New Year’s Eve.

WNBC-TV posted a video clip that includes surveillance footage of the crime at KGH Holdings in Koreatown, which is located in Midtown Manhattan. Three men are believed to have carried out the crime.

The New Year’s Eve celebration, which included 1 million revelers and thousands of police officers, served as a distraction as the thieves raided two safes. They took rings, necklaces and other jewelry, tossing the items into their backpacks.

The thieves are believed to have “pried and hammered” their way into the business, according to WNBC. They’d been waiting in the building since about 10 p.m.

Police are still searching for the suspects.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
