Tulsa County Sheriff's Office took two teens into custody after a pursuit that ended in Sapulpa. Authorities say the teens - one an adult and the other a juvenile - were in a stolen pickup. 

Deputies first spotted the truck on Highway 64 just west of downtown Tulsa around 10:30 a.m. Sunday. After learning it had been stolen in Sand Springs, they tried to pull the truck over. Instead, the driver took off through several areas of west Tulsa then into Sapulpa.

Authorities say speeds during the pursuit exceeded 90 mph. Sapulpa police and TCSO deputies got the truck stopped in the area of South Water Street and East Goodykoontz Avenue.

The two males inside were taken into custody, and the driver is expected to face multiple complaints.
