A former Roswell police officer has been convicted of robbing a Subway restaurant at gunpoint. 

Back in 2016, Valerie Palombi cleaned out the register at the Subway on North Main Street, while her accomplice, Kevin Blake, pointed a gun at employees. 

Palombi served two years as an officer with the Roswell Police Department but was fired a few months before the robbery after she caused a police standoff by firing off shots outside her home and threatening suicide. 

Her sentencing is set for May. Blake pleaded guilty to armed robbery and is set to be sentenced next week.
