Silver & Gold Connection: Why would show anyone ALL the bracelets? Keep the merchandise behind the glass, show the customer I piece at a time. Unless of course this employee is in on the take with the other criminal or maybe the bracelets were worth maybe $100.00 and the Merchant inflated for insurance purposes. The cynical mind at work here.
