According to CSPD, at around 10 a.m. on Oct. 13, detectives of the Metro Vice Narcotics and Intelligence Unit’s Motor Vehicle Theft Task Force, found a stolen vehicle in the 9600 block of North Powers Boulevard near East Woodman Road.
Detectives with assistance from the CSPD Tactical Enforcement and K9 Units were able to stop the vehicle. The two alleged suspects ran from the car leaving two handguns behind.
