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.

When Liquidation Is the Best Option, This Legendary Jeweler Chose Wilkerson

George Koueiter & Sons Jewelers, a 65-year old jewelry institution in Grosse Pointe, MI, had always been a mainstay in this suburban Detroit community. But when owners George and Paul Koueiter were ready to retire, they made the decision to close rather than sell. “We decided our best option to do the liquidation sale was Wilkerson,” says Paul Koueiter. The results, says George Koueiter, exceeded expectations and the process was easy. “Wilkerson just kept us in mind,” says George. “They never did anything without asking and whatever they asked us to do was just spot on.”
