Authorities seized about 20,000 N-95 masks from a jewelry store on Long Island, NBC New York reports.

On Thursday morning, members of Homeland Security Investigations and the New York Police Department loaded the masks into a van after searching Jewels by Viggi in Great Neck.

The raid was part of an investigation into possible hoarding and price-gouging of the masks, which are in high demand from hospitals amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The store was allegedly offering the masks online at five times the fair price, NBC New York reports. But there have been no arrests or criminal charges.

The news outlet reports that it has been unable to reach store owner Daniel Arbusman.

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.”
