Local dealer ripped off
By Carolyn B. Edwards BCC Staff Writer
Local antique dealer Diane Floyd had over $8,000 worth of vintage and collectible jewelry stolen from a display case at a Kerrville antiques mall last week.
The owners of Love's Sunrise Antique Mall, 820 Water Street, reported the missing jewelry Tuesday afternoon, July 10.
According to the Kerrville Police Department, store employees said the case was locked at 4:30 pm on Monday, but the owner noticed pieces missing the following day.
Floyd said she has notified area antiques dealers, pawn shops and gold and silver buyers to be on the lookout for her pieces. "There was a lot of turquoise and silver, squash blossom necklaces. I had a lot of collectible cameos, sterling silver pieces, vintage jewelry," she said. "They knew what they were taking. They took the best pieces and left those that had little value."
The mall store did not have surveillance cameras.
Floyd owns Floyd's Tack n Tique on State Highway 16 in Bandera.
