— Authorities arrested a 38-year-old man and his 19-year-old nephew in Lee County early Thursday after a chase through Wake and Chatham counties.

Cary police officers spotted a Budget Rental truck behind Wal-Mart on Kildaire Farm Road around 12:30 a.m. When they tried to stop the truck, the driver took off, authorities said.

Apex police took over the chase on U.S. Highway 1, and speeds reached about 85 miles per hour, authorities said. Deputies put out stop sticks in Lee County, which is where the chase ended.

The two men in the truck – Ricky McCoy Jacobs and his nephew, D'Andre K. Jacobs – jumped out and ran, but authorities quickly captured them. No one was hurt.

Authorities say the men stole wooden pallets from Wal-Mart.

D'Andre Jacobs was charged with two counts of felony larceny and resisting, delaying and obstructing a public officer. Bond was set at $6,000. Ricky Jacobs' charges were not immediately available.
