Washington, January 19, 2015(PTI) A teenage US couple who spent two weeks on the run after allegedly carrying out a crime spree across several southern states was arrested on Sunday, authorities said.

Police had been looking for 18-year-old Dalton Hayes and his 13-year-old girlfriend Cheyenne Phillips after they allegedly stole at least two vehicles and cashed stolen checks. US media outlets had described the couple as a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde, the Depression-era lovebird outlaws.
 
Phillips was reported missing on January 3 by her father in Grayson, Kentucky, and was spotted with Hayes nine days later in a Walmart in Manning, South Carolina, about 470 miles away.
 
According to a statement from the Grayson County Sheriff's Office, the couple was arrested on Sunday by authorities in Panama City Beach, Florida. They had been found asleep in a pickup truck that had been stolen in Georgia, the statement read.
 
"It should be noted that throughout the multi-state hunt for them, no civilian was injured, neither one of them were injured and no police officer was injured," the statement added.
