FBI: Female suspect's jewelry store robbery spree continues in Tennessee

FBI: Suspects sought in multi-state armed robbery spree

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A female suspect linked to robberies in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina has added another state to her long rap sheet.

On October 16, the 5-foot-8, 130 pound woman entered a Jared Vault location in Seiverville, Tennessee and robbed the store with the use of a handgun, according to the FBI. She held two employees at gunpoint, zip-tied their hands and moved them to the store's back office, according to officials.

Authorities say the suspect returned to the store's showroom and then placed jewelry in a shopping bag before leaving the store.

Prior to the Tennessee robbery, there was already an up to $10,000 reward offered for information leading to the arrest of the armed and dangerous suspect wanted in connection to her previous stops on the jewelry store robbery spree.

The suspect walked into a Reeds Jewelers store in Panama City Beach about 10 a.m. Aug. 11 and pulled a handgun on store employees, federal investigators said. At gunpoint, she tied two employees' hands and moved them into the store's bathroom, according to the FBI.

Afterward, she removed several pieces of jewelry from various display cases. The day before, she had gone inside and asked about the same items later reported stolen, investigators said.

She's also suspected of robbing a Jared Jewelry store in Bluffton, S.C. Sept. 2, a Zale's Jewelry store in Dawsonville, Ga. Aug. 5 and another Jared location in Woodstock, Ga. April 28, according to the FBI.

She and a black male suspect suspected in the Panama City, Dawsonville and Woodstock robberies are considered armed and dangerous, investigators said. They're believed to be driving a red 2009/2010 Honda Civic LX with tinted windows.

Authorities say the suspect is still considered armed and dangerous and the FBI has launched a multi-state search for information.
