BLACK RIVER FALLS, Wis. (AP) — Two men suspected in a crime spree after walking away from a Wisconsin correctional center have been arrested in Florida.

The Seminole Police Department says the two men were arrested after a chase in Hollywood, Fla., early Wednesday. Dispatcher Paige Gutierrez says they are being held in the Broward County Jail.

Authorities say the men, James C. Misleveck and James R. Newman, stole a shotgun after fleeing from the Black River boot camp July 17, stole several vehicles and kidnapped and robbed a woman at a Black River Falls casino.

Jackson County sheriff’s officials say the two commandeered the woman’s SUV and forced her into the back seat at gunpoint. They drove to Tomah, then Sparta where the men stole a pickup truck. At some point, the woman escaped.
