'Bonnie and Clyde' suspect booked into Florida jail
Feb. 06, 2016
PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) — The surviving suspect in a multistate crime spree has been booked into a Florida jail.
Records show that 30-year-old Brittany Nicole Harper faces felony charges of robbery, kidnapping, vehicle theft and home invasion. She was being held on a $1.16 million bond Saturday at the Escambia County Jail.
Her boyfriend, Blake Fitzgerald, died during a shootout in the Florida Panhandle early Friday morning. During the standoff, authorities say, Fitzgerald betrayed his girlfriend and unsuccessfully used her as a human shield. She was wounded in the leg and hospitalized under armed guard.
The couple allegedly committed crimes in Missouri, Alabama, Georgia and Florida. The U.S. Marshals Service called them a "modern-day Bonnie and Clyde."
Her mugshot seems to have been taken in the hospital. It's unclear whether she's retained an attorney.
