(Newser) – West Virginia cops picked up Triston Kindle and Rose May yesterday after a car crash and foot chase, reports Reuters, ending what police say is the Ohio teenagers' nearly week-long crime spree that covered three states. The duo, 16 and 15, respectively, kicked things off Monday by stealing a truck, reports the New York Daily News, adding that cops had dubbed them "a modern day Bonnie and Clyde." From there, they are accused of: stealing shotgun shells; stealing a car in Pennsylvania; attempting to rob a gas station; and injuring an officer who thwarted the robbery after he hung onto their vehicle and was dragged a short distance. Reuters notes that the teens' parents are en route.
