Grand jury indicts Missouri woman in multistate crime spree

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – Federal prosecutors in Alabama say a Missouri woman has been indicted on eight counts in a multistate crime spree.

Authorities said 30-year-old Brittany Nicole Harper of Joplin, Missouri, was charged Wednesday with conspiracy to transport a stolen vehicle across state lines, two counts of transporting a vehicle across state lines, three counts of carjacking and two counts of brandishing a weapon during a violent crime.

Prosecutors say Harper was involved in crimes that span four states. The pursuit ended Feb. 5 when Harper’s boyfriend, Blake Fitzgerald, was fatally shot by police in Florida.

Authorities say the couple stole a Cadillac during a test drive in Missouri, later carjacked victims at gunpoint in Alabama and Georgia, and also were involved in a home invasion.

It’s unclear if Harper has an attorney.
