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.

A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic? Wilkerson Showed Them the Way

For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.”
