GALAX, Va. - — UPDATE, Monday at 8:20pm:
Two teenage girls reported missing from Galax Saturday have been found safe, and the woman they were with has been taken into custody.
The Galax Police Department says it appears the two 15-year-old girls left with 20-year-old Catheryn Miller voluntarily Saturday night. While investigating the girls' disappearances, officers say they found evidence that Miller had also robbed someone at the Glendale Apartment complex Saturday. That was also where the two girls had last been seen.
Officers say their investigation lead them to Bluefield, Virginia Monday afternoon, where they found Miller at aMcDonald'srestaurant. She was taken into custody on charges of extortion, assault and destruction of property. All of those charges, police say, stem from the suspected robbery that happened Saturday evening.
After Miller's arrest, officers say they obtained information from witnesses that took them to an apartment in Carroll County. Authorities found the two missing girls there. They've since been brought back to their families.
