MOUNT PLEASANT, Wis. (AP) - Investigators are trying to track down thieves who made off with multiple vehicles from a southeastern Wisconsin car dealership.

The Racine Journal Times reports (http://bit.ly/29qPIqI ) that police saw multiple vehicles racing away from the Porcaro Ford Dealership in the village of Mount Pleasant in Racine County around 2:30 a.m. Monday.

Officers tried to pull them over but they sped away. Police said in a news release they gave up pursuing them due to the speed and reckless nature of the drivers. Some of the vehicles had no lights on.

Officers did come across one of the vehicles smashed into a median and arrested a 13-year-old boy as he tried to run away. The vehicle was on fire but officers extinguished the flames with equipment from their squad cars.

The boy was taken to Wheaton Franciscan-All Saints Hospital in the city of Racine with minor injuries. Police have not released his name. He could face numerous charges.

Officers later found substantial damage at the dealership.
