Armed jewelry store robber testified against them in week-long trial.

The three men who partnered with Abigail Kemp to rob five jewelry stores across the Southeast have been found guilty, the WJHG in Panama City, FL reports. The article says that the men – Lewis Jones III, 36, and brothers Larry Gilmore, 44, and Michael Gilmore, 47 – face up to life in prison and will be sentenced in October. Kemp, who is also facing a life sentence, testified against the three men in hopes of receiving a lighter sentence.

The article cites court documents, which say that “Jones, M. Gilmore, and L. Gilmore instructed Kemp on the proper way to manipulate a handgun, how to act when in a store, how to secure the store employees with zip ties, and what code words to use when communicating with them during these robberies."

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
