Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Flipboard 0 Kentucky teens Dalton Hayes, 18, and Cheyenne Phillips, 13, whose recent two-week crime spree earned them numerous comparisons to infamous crime couple ‘Bonnie and Clyde,’ were arrested on Sunday in Panama City Beach, FL. The pair disappeared from their small Kentucky hometown on Jan. 3 and have since been spotted in various states throughout the South. As they traveled, the teens survived by writing bad checks and stealing trucks- two of which contained guns.

Authorities are now attempting to extradite the couple to Kentucky to face multiple felony charges, including stealing three vehicles, one of which they crashed into a tree before escaping into a wooded area nearby. During the two weeks in which Hayes and Phillips were on the run, Sheriff Chaffins expressed concern for the couple’s safety, as they became “increasingly brazen and dangerous.” “I know Dalton, and he has a history of making bad, bad decisions,” the Sheriff said. “I was the school resource officer before I was elected sheriff. Dalton is known to have disciplinary and defiance issues at the high school with authority.” Hayes is thought to have initially run due to an upcoming court appearance in which he’d learn whether he was to be indicted on recent burglary charges. His mother, Tammy Martin, later revealed that though Hayes’ case had not come up for trial, the teen had taken off two days before he was due to find out. Martin also revealed to the Associated Press that the 13-year-old Phillips had initially convinced both her son and the rest of his family that she was 19-years-old. Martin says that she believed the girl’s claims because she “would go in and write checks, and she would come out with cigarettes and stuff, so I didn’t have any reason not to believe she wasn’t 19. Because normally you can’t buy cigarettes when you’re 13 years old.” She added that by the time her son realized that his girlfriend was significantly younger than she had claimed,”he was already done in love with her.” Hayes’ mother says that although her son contacted her once while he was on the run, it was more than likely in an attempt to throw the police off of the couple’s trail. Though Hayes had claimed in a text message that the pair were in Mississippi, they were later spotted in Kentucky around the same time. “I’m sure he thought that I would call the police and tell them where he was,” Martin said. Thankfully however, both Hayes and Phillips were arrested without incident, which had been a growing concern among family members as well as authorities. “There’s going to come a time when we’re not going to see him as an 18-year-old kid,” Sheriff Chaffins remarked last week, during a multi-state manhunt for the teens. “We’re going to see him as someone who’s stolen three vehicles with two handguns in them, and the outcome is not going to be good for either one of them if they don’t turn themselves in.” Twitter Tweet Facebook Share Email This article was written for Business 2 Community by Jay Leonard.Learn how to publish your content on B2C Author: Jay Leonard Jay is a UK-based cryptocurrency expert, specialising in fundamental analysis and medium to long term investments.
