MANCHESTER, N.H.—Police say a New Hampshire woman charged with robbing a pharmacy wasn't hard to find: Her name was on the license plate of the getaway car.

Police say a motorist watched the woman flee from a Rite Aid parking lot in Manchester. The witness reported that items were being tossed from her car Friday morning.

The vanity plate read: "B-USHER."

Police tell WCVB-TV that the car was registered to 43-year-old Bonnie Usher, who was arrested at her home. Police recovered stolen money and found a ski mask tossed from the car.

An official at the Hillsborough County Jail said she was being held Sunday night on $60,000 bail. The jail's paperwork did not indicate whether she retained a lawyer.
