The three suspects on trial in federal court in Panama City for a sling of jewelry heists across the southeast were found guilty on all charges Monday.

Lewis Jones III, and brothers Larry and Michael Gilmore now face sentencing for conspiracy, robbery and weapon charges.

According to court documents Jones and the Gilmore brothers recruited Abigail Kemp. The Gilmore brothers then trained her and Jones assisted in the robberies one of which took place at a jewelry store in Pier Park. Kemp's usual practice was to show a gun, tie up employees and escape with watches and jewelry.

Kemp was caught by the FBI after phone records showed she was near each of the six robberies.

She plead guilty earlier this month and testified against her accomplices last week.
