Police: Teen couple wanted in crime spree stole truck in Henry County

Two teenagers wanted in a multi-state crime spree passed through Henry County where police say they stole a pickup truck packed with guns, Channel 2 Action News reported.

Police are looking for Cheyenne Phillips, 13, and Dalton Hayes, 18, who allegedly stole cars, forged checks and burglarized homes.

It’s not clear if they are still in Georgia.

Police say the couple may have been involved in a series of home burglaries before taking off in a stolen red pickup and passing off forged checks in Kentucky, North Carolina, and South Carolina.

Their next and last known stop was Wednesday on Airline Road in Henry County. There, the couple allegedly ditched the pickup and stole a silver 2001 Toyota Tundra pickup with Georgia tag CF116I, Henry County police Lt. Joey Smith said in a statement. Firearms were reported inside the vehicle, he said.

Smith urged caution.

“Knowing that weapons are involved and it’s confirmed, always you are going to be on heightened alert and everyone should take caution if they see the vehicle. Never approach it,” he said.

Hayes’ mother told Channel 2: “He has never went this long without contacting me. It’s very stressful. I’m just worried that they’re not safe anymore.”
