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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
