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.

And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
