Two wholesale jewelry dealers say a bag containing 400-thousand dollars in jewelry is missing, after workers at the Cedar Rapids Airport forced them to check the bag because it was too big to carry on. David and Jason Jones of Jones Brothers Global Liquidators were in Iowa showing the jewelry to a Fairfield dealer. David Jones says they discovered the bag was missing during a layover in Cincinnati. Airport security checkpoint manager Karen Ealy says baggage handlers didn’t know what was in the bag and are not responsible.The jewelers are talking with the F-B-I about the missing bag. It contained rings and bracelets worth 400-thousand dollars — but the retail value is more than one million dollars.
