Teenage Girl Claims To Have Bomb, Robs Bank

SYRACUSE. N.Y. (January 4, 2013)--A 17-year-old girl who held up a bank by threatening tellers with what she claimed was a bomb detonator was in custody Friday, police in Syracuse, N.Y., said.

The Syracuse Post-Standard reports that Cheyenne Brandon walked into an Alliance Bank branch Wednesday morning, holding a device attached to a cord.

Court records say she told the tellers she had a bomb and "was going to blow everyone up" unless they turned over their money.

Two tellers gave her a total of $1,395, records show.

Police said an officer saw Brandon running into a nearby park and caught her.

The money was recovered and there was no bomb.

Brandon was held Friday on a first-degree robbery charge.
