Truck hits jewelry store, stolen jewelry

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – A Memphis businessman is picking up the pieces after his store robbed on Friday morning in a smash-and-grab.

CCTV captured a truck entering Cunningham’s Watch and Jewelry Repair in Midtown.

It was then that the life of store owner Craig Cunningham changed.

“It’s very disappointing, especially two weeks before Christmas,” he said.

The business owner said the truck crashed outside the store around 3 a.m. and thieves stole nearly $ 70,000 in jewelry, leaving behind extensive damage and causing frustration.

“Stockings dirty suckas, sap suckas but they will eventually have theirs.” I still believe it will happen. Their gonna get theirs in the end, karma is a you know what, ”Cunningham said.

Cunningham’s Watch and Jewelry Repair, located on N. Cleveland Street in the Crosstown neighborhood of Memphis, was established in 1986, and the owner says this has never happened before.

Hours after the crash, community members and patrons gathered to help Cunningham clean up, as many are struggling to make sense of the crime.

He said he hopes the store will be cleaned up and reopened within two days.

Burglars have infiltrated a white F150. It is not known how many burglars are involved. As for Cunningham, it was a learning experience.

“There’s really nothing I can do except put barricades on the front of the building, but I doubt I will. I’m just going to do a little more due diligence and a lot of the coins are put back in the safe at night, like I should have, ”he said.

This is an ongoing investigation. If you know anything about this crime, contact Crime Stoppers at (901) -528-CASH.
