Seriously, they tried this?

Police say two men burglarized a jewelry store in the French Quarter of New Orleans — and the shop was right next door to a police station.

The suspects were arrested just a few minutes later, NOLA.com reports.

Detectives at the station heard glass being shattered next door a little after midnight, NOLA.com reports. Immediately afterword, a person “ran into the station to let officers know that two men were burglarizing David’s Antiques and Jewelry store,” according to the news report.

Police arrested two men: Donovan Griffin and Zachariah Woodruff. They were found with about $10,000 in merchandise, along with hammers and a crowbar, according to authorities.

The suspects were booked into the local jail on counts of simple burglary, along with carrying illegal weapons.

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.”
