The car was stolen Saturday evening from a Wal-Mart store in Muskegon County's Fruitport Township.
Police said surveillance video from the store showed two people walking past the car a number of times before getting into the vehicle and driving off. A vehicle with the same license plate number as the stolen vehicle was spotted Sunday and chased.
No serious injuries were reported.
Police said the teen was on tether at the time for a previous breaking and entering charge. He is being held at the Muskegon County Juvenile Transition Center.
