A handgun was seized by police early Saturday after two men fled from their car.
Just before 3 a.m. Saturday, an officer and his police dog patrolling near 80 Avenue and 79 Street saw a suspicious vehicle.
As the officer pulled in behind the vehicle, police say in a release, it accelerated away and disappeared into a nearby residential area. Moments later the vehicle was spotted, abandoned in a back alley near 75 Street and 77 Avenue.
Soon after, another officer in the area spotted a suspicious man running east from the area of the abandoned vehicle.
That man was arrested by the officer without incident.
An officer and his police dog, Sisco, tracked a second suspect to the door of a residential garage.
The officer told anyone in the garage to come out and within seconds the other suspect was taken into custody.
A search of the suspects and the vehicle revealed a handgun, ammunition and a canister of bear spray.

A 26-year-old has been charged with possession of break in tools, breach of conditions and several firearms related offenses.
