A U.S couple was arrested in Florida after a two-week multistate hunt. The teenage couple is accused of a number of gun and car thefts.

The Kentucky couple, 13-year-old Cheyenne Phillips and 18-year-old Dalton Haynes, was arrested in Panama City Beach, Florida on Sunday. They are suspected of stealing three vehicles with two of those having guns inside. Authorities described the teenage couple as "increasingly brazen and dangerous" while they were on the run for two weeks. The hunt for them, which started in Kentucky, continued in multiple states. They were eventually discovered inside a Toyota Tundra stolen in Georgia. According to a statement from the Grayson County Sheriff's Office in Kentucky, law enforcement surrounded the car, while the couple was arrested "without further incident."

The couple is expected to face multiple felony charges. Sheriff Norman Chaffins says that he knows that 18-year-old boy who has a history of making "making bad, bad decisions." "I was the school resource officer before I was elected sheriff," CNN quotes Chaffins, "Dalton is known to have disciplinary and defiance issues at the high school with authority." He also says that the boy has recently been charged with burglary.

According to authorities, the couple may have travelled to South Carolina and Georgia before reaching Florida. In addition to the cars and guns, the couple is believed to have stolen a number of passed stolen cheques. BBC reports that Dalton's parents earlier asked the young couple to surrender and "face the consequences" of their actions.

Dalton's mother Tammy Martin says that the couple has been dating for around three months before running away together. According to her, Dalton as well as the family thought that the girl was 19. However, Dalton was "already done in love with her" when he discovered that the girl was only 13 years old. His family last heard from him when he sent a text message on Jan 6. Cheyenne's family, on the other hand, reported her missing on Jan 3.

Chaffins earlier said that neither he nor Dalton's family had a "good feeling" about how the running away would turn out. Cheyenne will appear in a juvenile court later, while Dalton is scheduled to appear in court on Jan 19.
