Thieves Take Jewelry Safe and Leave It on Road in California Burglary

The safe contained jewelry and watches valued at about $300,000.




A safe was dragged from a jewelry store in Oakland, CA, on Thursday.

The thieves hit at Grand Jewelry Repair shortly before 4 a.m., using a crowbar to get inside. They tried once with a rope, which broke, and then tried again with a chain, the owners’ son, Christopher Tran, told KTVU.

KPIX-TV reported that there were five suspects in two automobiles.

They got the safe partially into a van using a winch. Eventually the safe, which was dragging the ground, fell onto a freeway off-ramp.

The safe contained jewelry and watches valued at about $300,000. The items were recovered.




This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
