Two men, ages 47 and 24, were taken into custody after 2 a.m. Saturday after their vehicle was followed by police, ending in a collision near A.L. Thompson’s in George Town, a spokesperson for the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service said.
What appeared to be a loaded and unlicensed firearm was recovered from the men’s pickup truck, which was also seized for the investigation, the RCIPS said in a press release.
Chief Inspector Patrick Beersingh said the men failed to stop for police on Shamrock Road. Police then followed the vehicle until the driver lost control, resulting in a collision with a utility pole on Sound Way, just off North Sound Road.
The men were treated for injuries at the Cayman Island Hospital and released into police custody.
