Update: High-speed Petaluma chase ends in arrest of burglary suspects

A Mustang driver tried to outrun a pursuing Sonoma County sheriff's deputy early Wednesday, reaching up to 110 mph on Stony Point Road and weaving around morning commute traffic, according to a Sonoma County sheriff's official.

The chase ended in northern Petaluma with Petaluma police arresting two men in the car at gunpoint.

Deputies early Wednesday were looking for a red car after a southern Santa Rosa resident called 911 at about 6:40 a.m. to say he'd just found two men attempting to break into his garage, said sheriff's Lt. Steve Brown.

The Sunland Avenue resident said he confronted the men and they left. He gave a description of them and their car.

At about 7:35 a.m., a deputy patrolling in the area spotted a red Ford Mustang, which was a possible match, said Brown.
