The pursuit ended when the driver pulled over on southbound I-71 at Kenwood Road. 

Both teens were taken into custody without further incident, according to the sheriff's office.

During the pursuit, deputies said a passenger threw a large bag out the passenger’s side window of the vehicle.

Blue Ash police found it and confirmed three handguns were inside.
