She’s armed, and she appears to have an accomplice.

The Jacksonville, FL division of the FBI is seeking the identity of two suspects who have robbed multiple jewelry stores across the Southeast over the past several months.

The latest theft came on Monday when a white female in her late 20s or early 30s entered a Jared Vault location in Mebane, NC with a handgun and “forced two employees to a back room and zip-tied their hands. She then returned to the merchandise area, removed various items from display cases, and placed them into a shopping bag before exiting the store and fleeing in an unknown direction.”

She employed similar tactics in five previous robberies, including those of the Jared Vault in Sevierville, TN (Oct. 16, 2015); Jared Jewelry in Bluffton, SC (Sept. 2, 2015); Reeds Jewelers in Panama City Beach, FL (Aug. 11, 2015); Zale’s Jewelry in Dawsonville, GA (Aug. 5); and Jared Jewelry in Woodstock, GA (April 29, 2015). A black male suspect was also spotted on surveillance video in four of those robberies.

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
