Wanneroo Times - - News - Mark Don­ald­son

A MAN al­legedly threw a loaded gun out of the window of a ve­hi­cle dur­ing a po­lice pur­suit in Wangara this month.

Of­fi­cers at­tempted to stop the Holden Rodeo about 12.20am on Paramount Drive on Satur­day, Au­gust 12.

Sergeant Stu­art Fair­lie said the of­fi­cers al­legedly saw a black ob­ject thrown from the car.

The car be­came bogged af­ter los­ing con­trol at the in­ter­sec­tion of Mo­ti­va­tion and Ex­cel­lence drives. Two men were de­tained. “Po­lice hunted for the black ob­ject and found a loaded hand­gun,” Sgt Fair­lie said.

Of­fi­cers also seized metham­phetamine and an ex­tend­able ba­ton.

Po­lice charged a Girrawheen man (24), who was driv­ing the ve­hi­cle, with eight of­fences.

Among them were al­le­ga­tions of reck­less driv­ing, firearm pos­ses­sion and drug pos­ses­sion.
