The police report says 19-year-old Abenezer Madebo ran from the car while 18-year-old Ibrahim Konneh and 31-year old Dominic Ladu attempted to hide from authorities. After the men exited their vehicle, police found an eight-ounce bag of marijuana and two handguns.

Officials say all three were eventually found and charged with possession of marijuana and paraphernalia, possession with intent to distribute, and committing a felony with a firearm.

Madebo also faces charges for fleeing police, while Ladu was also charged with possession of a firearm by a former violent offender and committing a felony with a firearm.
