DARTMOUTH, Mass., Feb. 24 (UPI) -- A teenage runaway girl whose alleged partner in crime posed for a MySpace photo holding $50 bills has been charged with robbing two Massachusetts banks.

Prosecutors said Kaitlin Ingham, 17, admitted the two robberies but claimed she was forced to carry them out, The (New Bedford) Standard-Times reported. Ingham wept during her arraignment Tuesday as a magistrate ordered her held in lieu of $3,500 cash bail.

Ingham and Kristopher Santillo, 21, were arrested Monday at the Dartmouth Motor Inn.

Santillo allegedly robbed a bank in Acushnet on Feb. 6, while Ingham is charged with robberies in Dartmouth and New Bedford last week.

Detective Robert Levinson of the Dartmouth police said the suspects were identified and traced to the motel after relatives reported recognizing them from pictures captured by bank surveillance cameras.

"I don't believe the coercion story. She saw an opportunity and took it," Levinson said.

"Everything obviously leads to these suspects. Pictures don't lie."
