Teenage Bonnie And Clyde Suspected In Crime Spree Across Several States

Posted in: , , ,

Two Kentucky teenagers, Dalton Hayes 18, and Cheyenne Phillips 13, are suspected in a multi-state crime spree that has police desperately searching for them since they vanished nearly two weeks ago from their hometown. Hayes' mother said the girl had portrayed herself as being 19 years old, and urged the young couple - who had been dating for about three months - to turn themselves in and "face the consequences."

Grayson County Sheriff Norman Chaffins said that after the couple disappeared Jan. 3, authorities believe they have traveled to South Carolina and Georgia. Along the way, they're suspected of stealing multiple vehicles and using stolen checks, law enforcement officials said.

Chaffins said the couple's behavior is "becoming increasingly brazen and dangerous," and he said they had evaded law enforcement twice. The sheriff said he believes Hayes is calling the shots as the teens try to stay ahead of the law.
