A 17-year-old girl was arraigned in Syracuse City Court yesterday after attempting to rob a bank.

According to police, Cheyenne Brandon walked into a bank Wednesday morning and threatened that she had a bomb on her person that she would detonate.  That turned out not be the case.

A teller gave her money and Brandon allegedly took off running. Police caught her with the cash in a nearby park shortly afterwards.
