The Jewelers’ Security Alliance (JSA) has issued a “code red” warning ahead of Thursday’s July 4 celebrations in the US. 

The New York-based association, which provides crime information and assistance to jewelers across America, has warned that power interruptions at jewelry stores are a “red flag” for a break-in. Holidays such as July 4 are particularly “high-risk,” it said in a crime alert late last week. 

The JSA has identified over 50 cases to date in 2019 where burglars have cut power supplies to US jewelry stores ahead of a break-in.
