A youth who pleaded guilty to orchestrating an armed robbery at a National City jewelry store was sentenced Monday to eight years in federal prison.

Trenelle Cannon, 23, of San Diego, admitted to her role in the March 26, 2019 robbery, which included “instructing other people on what materials to obtain for the armed robbery and instructing them on what to do during the robbery.” , according to United States Attorney’s Office.

Prosecutors say Cannon never entered the store, but provided the gun used by his accomplices and later worked to sell the stolen merchandise.

According to the US Attorney’s Office, the thieves entered the Alpha and Omega jewelry store, pointed a gun at the store clerk, smashed the jewelry boxes and made off with the stolen goods.

Cannon pleaded guilty last year to one count of conspiracy to interfere with commerce through theft.
