Rapidly. And while – as we’ve explored here – anything’s possible as far as a bust timetable is concerned should stories making the rounds prove true – increasingly the feeling is that this thing may be about to burst wide open…one way or another. There are just too many people in the local news media who’ve begun sniffing about for this story.
And still the jeweler in question is not returning my calls nor answering his telephone.
Meanwhile area police and justice department officials appear to be under increasing media pressure to make a move if there’s one to be made and release the story.
One local jeweler says he’s heard it involves “Internet drug purchases and previously missing pieces of jewelry from prominent local families.”
And jewelry once thought lost or stolen – in some cases that had been settled on with insurance companies – has reportedly showed up on the jeweler’s shelves and/or website as “estate pieces.”
And that said jeweler is rumored to have lawyered up and made overtures to authorities inquiring as to what if anything they may have anything on him.
The jeweler is also rumored to be in the process of moving.
So we’ll see maybe, right…or not
