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.

Her sentencing hearing is scheduled for Oct. 12.

Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith.
