Stephanie A. Gutherless
Stephanie Gutherless allegedly broke into a house Wednesday and stole some pills, putting her back behind bars just two months after she got out of the women’s correctional center. Gutherless, 29, was sent to the women’s correctional center for giving meth to a 15-year-old boy, a state ward. The boy told police that Gutherless is his cousin and she supplied meth to him on two occasions. She was arrested in October 2011 and sentenced to prison on June 4, 2012.
Gutherless has been arrested several times in the last decade for such charges as possession and distribution of methamphetamine, theft, unauthorized use of a financial device and probation violations.
She was sentenced to 1.5 to 3 years and actually served 10 months in the state correctional center after more than six months in the county jail. She was released April 20.
On Wednesday, a pair of homeowners told the North Platte police that they left home for a couple of hours in the afternoon. When they came back they noticed things out of place, including a bottle of prescription medicine and some loose change that was apparently missing. Police found a window screen out of place and suspected that someone broke in there.
Gutherless, who is a relative to the victim, was questioned and allegedly admitted she had entered the home and took some change. Police said they found many inconsistencies in her story, according to police spokesman John Deal.
Gutherless is charged with burglary and her bond was set Friday at $25,000.
