NOVA ESTHER GUTHRIE Armed Bank Robbery (2 Cts.)

Age: 26 (DOB 06-06-73) Sex: Female Race: White Height: 5'4" Weight: 130 lbs Eye Color: Brown Hair Color: Brown Scars: Unknown Tattoos: Unknown

Nova Esther Guthrie is wanted by the FBI for armed bank robbery.

Agents say Guthrie and her boyfriend, Craig Pritchert robbed the Bank of Southwest in Durango, Colorado on October 31, 1997, and the Wells Fargo bank in Mesa, Arizona on August 13, 1999. The FBI believes Guthrie and Pritchert have also held up banks throughout the Pacific Northwest and Texas. In March 1999, Guthrie surrendered to the FBI in Denver, Colorado and was released on bond. She moved to Cheyenne, Wyoming to live with relatives and got a job as a waitress. Pritchert remained at large. Agents believe the love-stuck couple reunited on the Internet. On April 4, 1999, Guthrie drove out of Cheyenne to meet Pritchert and resumed her life on the run with him.

Pritchert is an active day trader on the Internet. Agents say he covers his stock losses by robbing banks. The robberies have all been meticulously planned, employing scanners, handcuffs, guns, two-way radios, masks, and well-timed precision to gain access to the bank vault where the large amounts of currency are stored. Guthrie is believed to have been the getaway driver in the Durango robbery.
