ABERDEEN, Md. (AP) — Police say a vehicle chase led them to seize a .45-caliber handgun and thousands of rounds of ammunition and arrest two Maryland men.

Aberdeen police Sgt. Shannon Persuhn tells The Aegis in a statement 37-year-old Brandon Tyre Jones was stopped for a window tint violation before fleeing minutes later.

Police say evidence found in Jones’ car was used to get a search warrant for a residence where they found the gun and the more than 9,000 rounds of various calibers early Thursday. There police arrested 36-year-old Andre Evans-El on charges including weapons possession by a felon.

Court records say Evans-El was held on $5,000 bond and released from jail Thursday. Jones is held without bond on several charges including disorderly conduct and reckless endangerment. It’s unclear if they have attorneys.
