     SYRACUSE. N.Y. (AP) - Police in Syracuse, N.Y., say a 17-year-old girl held up a bank by threatening tellers with what she claimed was a bomb detonator.
 
     The Syracuse Post-Standard reports that Cheyenne Brandon walked into an Alliance Bank branch Wednesday morning, holding a device attached to a cord.
 
     Court records say she told the tellers she had a bomb and "was going to blow everyone up" unless they turned over their money. Two tellers gave her a total of $1,395.
 
     Police tell the newspaper an officer saw Brandon running into a nearby park and caught her, recovering the money. There was no bomb.
 
     Brandon is being held on a first-degree robbery charge.
