A Rock Hill woman accused of a crucial role in the largest seizure of illegal guns in New York City history is set to appear in a Charlotte court Tuesday for an extradition hearing.

Kendall Jones, 23, the girlfriend of the plot’s alleged ringleader, faces five felony weapons indictments in New York in a scheme police said ran guns from South Carolina to New York. She has been in jail in Charlotte for two months since her arrest, refusing to waive extradition to face the charges.

Jones, called “Zebra Girl” by police after allegedly carrying the guns around New York in a zebra-striped bag, allegedly used a cell phone video to assemble one of the assault rifles she was helping to sell on a New York street corner.

Her boyfriend, Earl Campbell, 23, facing more than 230 charges after allegedly selling 90 guns for more than $75,000 to undercover police, waived extradition two weeks ago in Charlotte and is being held without bond in a New York jail. Campbell and Jones allegedly took the guns to New York by bus.

Another six people from Rock Hill were among 19 total charged in the ring.
