When deputies searched Guthrie's vehicle, they found a large quantity of personal identification documents, which included a U.S. passport, a stack of credit cards from a total of eight people, blank checks, medical insurance cards, AAA cards, Sam's Club cards), all of which appeared to have been stolen at some point in time.

They also found various items of jewelry, flashlights, two-way radios, five baggies of methamphetamine, glass smoking pipes, and a snorting straw in her purse.

Guthrie told deputies she knew the items were in her truck and she said she was going to throw the items away as someone else put the items in her truck.
