The car was stolen from a dealership in Unity, about 15 miles north of Marshfield.

Joe Stroik, police chief, says it's not known if a revolver and an uncased rifle were in the vehicle before it was stolen.

An officer tried to stop the car for speeding and erratic driving early Thursday. A chase ensued at speeds up to 110 mph. Wood County sheriff's deputies used stop sticks to puncture the car's tires about six miles west of Marshfield.

Authorities said both boys ran into a wooded area but officers caught up with them. Both were referred to juvenile authorities while an investigation continues.
