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

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
