Crime scene

San Francisco, CA--A jury found a man guilty on armed robbery, false imprisonment and weapons charges stemming from a 2017 jewelry store heist, according to a local news report.

The defendant, Michael Alexis, was also found guilty of using a semi-automatic firearm during the robbery, the San Francisco District Attorney’s office stated in a press release as reported by KRON 4 San Francisco.

“The jury’s verdict sends a clear message that violent crime is unacceptable and will not be tolerated,” San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins stated in the press release. “Although the stolen property was never recovered, justice was done, and Michael Alexis is being held accountable for his crimes.

Alexis was accused of holding two people hostage at gunpoint while he and accomplices stole over $1 million from the Elite Fine Jewelry Store in the Pacific Heights neighborhood.

Alexis’ accomplices pled guilty in 2020 and were sent to prison, the press release stated.
