Police tried to intercept an allegedly stolen car on the road from Geelong to Bacchus Marsh about 3.30pm after the driver refused to pull over.
The car drove through a number of farm fences before pulling over in a paddock off Balliang Road. The driver and the passenger fled the scene.
An extensive search started soon after, involving the air wing, the dog squad and two off-road motorbikes.
The search was stopped at 10pm on Tuesday and restarted on Wednesday morning after a sighting of the teenagers near Brisbane Road. The boys were arrested at 10.30am.
They were being interviewed by police in relation to the alleged car theft and several other incidents in the area over the past three days.
