On Sunday, Corozal Police were on mobile patrol in the Dominguez layout area when they began to pursue a black pickup truck, carrying three men. During the chase, the men allegedly tossed out several objects out of the car. But soon, Police managed to stop the vehicle and the two passengers ran into some nearby bushes, leaving the driver and owner of the car inside. He was apprehended by Police and so was one of the men who initially ran away. vlcsnap-2013-05-14-19h30m02s32Meanwhile, a search of the area where the objects were allegedly thrown, led to the discovery of  a 9mm black Beretta pistol, 29 9mm rounds of ammo and a black ski mask.
