She was accused of executing six armed heists across five states.

Abigail Kemp – who was arrested in January for a string of armed jewelry store robberies in five different states across the Southeast – has pleaded guilty, the Panama City News Herald reports. The article says that the 25-year-old Kemp, who allegedly worked with three accomplices, pleaded guilty to several counts of interference with commerce by threat or violence and committing a violent crime with a gun.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
