A father and son have been charged with possession of an unlicensed firearm after police recovered a gun in their crashed pick-up truck following a police chase.
47-year-old George Powell and his son 24-year-old Jordan made their initial court appearance Tuesday 24 January. They’ve been remanded into police custody and are set to re-appear 1 February.
Police say the incident started sometime after 2 a.m. Saturday 21 January when the truck the men were travelling in failed to stop for officers. Police pursued the truck which then slammed into a utility pole on North Sound Road before police found a 45-caliber semi-automatic handgun.
