Police arrested two men and seized a loaded handgun and marijuana allegedly meant for sales from their car following a brief pursuit that began as a routine traffic stop in Pasadena Monday night, officials said.

The incident began about 9:45 p.m. when an officer tried to pull over a car for a traffic violation in the area of Howard Street and Sunset Avenue, Pasadena police Lt. Sean Dawkins said.

The driver fled, initiating a chase, said Dawkins.

At two different points during the pursuit the driver stopped the vehicle and it appeared as though he was going to surrender, but again sped off when officers approached, according to Dawkins.

After leading officers on a chase for about a half-mile, the car came to a stop one last time at Lincoln Avenue and Palisade Street, he said. The driver and a passenger were taken into custody.

A search of the car turned up a loaded 9mm handgun, as well as marijuana allegedly meant for sales, Dawkins said.
