Police in Florida spotted on Friday two teens, Dalton Hayes, 18, and Cheyenne Phillips, 13, who are accused of stealing several cars since they went missing two weeks ago.
The teens, who were dubbed by some media reports as a new “Bonnie and Clyde,” were dating three months before they disappeared two weeks ago, and police said they stole vehicles to make their escape. Kentucky police said Hayes could face charges associated with his relationship with Cheyenne, who is a minor.
The duo appeared to have stolen a second vehicle recently with a .45-caliber handgun and a .38 special handgun sitting in the backseat, along with ammunition.
“They are getting increasingly brazen and hopefully they’ll come to their sense and turn themselves,” Grayson County Sheriff Norman Chaffins told The Washington Post on Friday. “I do believe them to be a danger now because the vehicle they stole has weapons in it.”
Police also said Hayes was out on bond on a felony burglary charge, which carries a sentence of one to five years, and that he didn’t want to face charges in Kentucky.
