BLACK RIVER FALLS(WKOW) -- Two men suspected in a crime spree after walking away from the Black River Falls Correctional Center have been arrested in Florida.
The Seminole Police Department says the two men -- 29-year-old James Newman and 18-year-old James Misleveck -- were arrested after a chase in Hollywood, Florida, early Wednesday. Officials say they are being held in the Broward County Jail.
Authorities say the men 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.
Officials with the Jackson County Sheriff's Office say the two took control 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.
