After days on the run on a crime spree that began in Florida, the Dougherty siblings were caught in Colorado.

VALDOSTA, Ga. -

Two of three siblings accused of robbing a south Georgia bank during a crime spree that started in Florida and ended with a shootout in Colorado pleaded guilty in a Georgia court.

Ryan Dougherty and Lee Grace Dougherty on Monday entered new pleas in federal court in Valdosta. They will return for sentencing on Dec. 17. Their brother, Dylan Stanley-Dougherty, is not scheduled to enter a new plea.

All three pleaded not guilty in May to Georgia bank robbery and gun charges.

The siblings pleaded guilty to Colorado charges last August. Ryan Dougherty got 18 years, Lee Dougherty received 24 years and Dylan Stanley-Dougherty got 32 years for those charges.

They still face charges in Florida where authorities say they shot at an officer during a high-speed chase.
