The FBI says a cell phone number and social media led to the arrest of a female jewelry thief.

Investigators say Abigail Kemp is the woman who stole at least $4 million in jewelry from stores across the south.

The 24-year-old aspiring model was arrested Friday in Georgia.

Federal agents recovered cell tower information that put Kemp's phone number at nearly all of the robbery locations.

They also used Kemp's own social media photos to match her Honda Civic to the one captured on surveillance video.

The FBI had additional help from tip callers who recognized Kemp's picture.

Authorities also took a possible accomplice into custody. They say the man acted as a lookout during the robberies.
