Cops Get Gun in O.W. but Not Owner

“Police were patrolling on Santa Lucia Street when they observed a male person acting very suspiciously and they approached the person when exiting the vehicle and police observed this person placing something between some tyres of a vehicle parked on the street. As a result, police stopped the person and did a search but nothing was found on him. As he was informed that he was being taken to where he had been seen where he was hiding something, he managed to escape from police custody. As a result of that, police went to where the vehicle was and police discovered a point thirty-eight revolver which was taken to the station and labeled it and at this present are seeing one make person being sought in regards to this investigation here.”
