This Month’s Nominee For Dumbest Criminal Ever

This guy had some issues.

I think I had one of the stupidest customers/criminals ever in my store.

A fellow came in to sell some scrap jewelry, and while my employee was examining and weighing the pieces the customer decided to stuff his hand in the JOA Children’s Charity canister and steal a fistful of bills. His first mistake was being too drunk, high, or stupid to notice the cameras pointed at the sales floor, one directly at him. What he earns top honors for is producing a driver's license so he could sell his scrap. He was arrested within hours. LEN O., WEST MIFFLIN, PA

Wilkerson Testimonials

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.”
