Gun and drugs thrown from vehicle during police pursuit

By Staff writer
A loaded gun and narcotics were thrown out of a vehicle at the onset of a police chase on U.S. Route 60 in Kanawha County Thursday night

The pursuit started when the METRO Drug Unit attempted to stop the GMC Terrain SUV near the Malden exit.

The driver refused to stop, then a .357 Magnum and narcotics were thrown from the vehicle.

The police chase lasted about five to 10 minutes.

A police supervisor told officers to end the pursuit for public safety reasons because the fleeing vehicle was traveling on the wrong side of the road, the dispatcher said.
