(NEWSER) – A Missouri couple is robbing its way across the American South with the FBI and US Marshals hot on its heels, AL.com reports. "I guess they see themselves as some kind of modern-day Bonnie and Clyde,'' one Missouri lawman says.

The crime spree may have started as early as Jan. 22, when Blake Fitzgerald and Brittany Harper are suspected of stealing guns from a Missouri doctor's home. Four days later, they allegedly stole a car, using it to lead a police chase two days after that. According to ABC News, the couple is suspected of robbing a hotel and taking the clerk hostage on Sunday. Later that day, they allegedly tried to carjack the manager of a McDonald's before stealing another car with its owner still inside. Those three crimes took place across a 60-mile stretch of Alabama, Fox News reports.
