Police seized two guns and arrested three young men following a reported car chase near Jewish War Veterans Drive in Boston Tuesday night.
The encounter began when police tried to stop a car driving upwards of 45 miles per hour in the area, according to a report. The car’s operator then sped away, weaving through traffic and making “several evasive turns” before another police cruiser blocked the car at the nearby Morton Street rotary, police said.
Officers searching the path of the chase said they found two loaded revolvers that had allegedly been thrown from the vehicle: a Charter Arms TargetBulldog 357 Magnum revolver and a Smith & Wesson 38 Special Model 10-7 revolver, according to police.
The three men now face a list of charges.
Jordan Searcy, 19, of Boston was charged with refusal to submit to a police officer, operating a motor vehicle without authority, carrying a loaded firearm, unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition.
Devonne McDonald-Jones, 18, and 17-year-old juvenile, both of Boston, were charged with carrying a loaded firearm, unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition.
