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 Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. 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.”
