DODGE CENTER, Minn. (AP) - Sheriff's officials say a juvenile is in custody after stealing a cement truck from a contractor and leading officers on a chase in Dodge County.

Authorities say the chase started about 3 p.m. Sunday in Dodge Center when the juvenile drove the truck onto Highway 14 toward Byron.

A State Patrol helicopter tracked the truck by air and officers followed on the ground where speeds reached 65 to 70 mph. Two squad cars were damaged during the pursuit.
