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."

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
