(Newser) – The string of jewelry-store robberies that spanned multiple states and involved the loss of millions of dollars' worth of diamonds and watches is now allegedly over, and a 24-year-old woman has been charged, reports the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Abigail Lee Kemp was arrested Friday in Georgia and the FBI says it also has an accomplice in custody, though, a rep says that "due to ongoing investigative efforts, the identity of the second person, and the details surrounding both arrests, are not being released at this time." The FBI credits "many callers" who provided tips after the agency publicized the case. Kemp stands accused of heists in Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
