Two more arrests in jewelry store armed robberies

New information from a Federal affidavit says three of the suspects trained Abby Kemp, 24, of Smyrna at a local Atlanta business owned by the two suspects who were just arrested.

Michael Bernard Gilmore, 46 and his brother Larry Bernard Gilmore, 43, of Atlanta were arrested this morning after the FBI raided a business they own. But investigators believe the business, Buckhead Window Tinting, on Cheshire Bridge Road, was being used to train for the robberies.

Neighboring businesses told 11 Alive’s Kevin Rowson they never saw any cars being worked on at the business.

Kemp became notorious because she was usually the only robber seen on surveillance cameras inside the jewelry stores. She and Lewis Jones, 35, were arrested in January and the two were charged in connection with at least six robberies.
