A woman who has robbed a string of jewelry stores in the South hit her sixth location on Monday.
The woman who the FBI is identifying as a white female in her late 20s or early 30s and approximately 5’8” tall and 130 pounds walked into a Jared Vault in Mebane, North Carolina and proceeded to force the two employees at the store into the back room at gunpoint and zip-tie their hands before looting the store and taking off.
She and the man believed to be her accomplice, a black male suspect in his late 30s or early 40s and approximately 6’0” tall and 250 pounds, have hit stores in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee since April.
The pairs other robberies include; Jared Vault in Sevierville, Tennessee, on October 16; Jared Jewelry in Bluffton, South Carolina, on September 2; Reeds Jewelers in Panama City Beach, Florida, on August 11; Zales Jewelry in Dawsonville, Georgia, on August 5; and Jared Jewelry in Woodstock, Georgia, on April 29.
It is not known if they are responsible for any other robberies at this time.
In all of the robberies the female appears to force employees to the back of the store at gunpoint, zip-tie them and then rob the facility.
She is believed to have stolen well over $500,000 worth of jewels at this point.
The vehicle the pair use for their armed robberies has changed each time, so it is not certain what kind of car they might be travelling in.
Both suspects are considered armed and dangerous.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of these suspects or jewelry store robberies, is asked to call the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324).
