VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

The Dougherty siblings accused of robbing a Valdosta bank during a cross-country crime spree made their first court appearance in Colorado.

Here are the new mug shots of the Lee Grace Dougherty, Ryan Dougherty, and Dylan Stanley.

They were captured Wednesday in Colorado after a high speed chase.

An officer shot the sister in the leg as she tried to reload her gun after the crash.

Valdosta Police are glad the national media attention helped catch the siblings but they say that attention can also be dangerous.

"Sometimes I hate to see these types of things sensationalized because it feeds these people's egos and that's not what we're trying to do," said Capt. Bobbi McGraw. "The intent of law enforcement is to get these folks in custody and off the streets."

The crime spree started last Tuesday.

Authorities in Florida say the siblings fired 20 shots at a police officer during a high speed chase.

They're accused of firing shots inside Valdosta's Certus Bank during a robbery later that day.
