VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — A loaded handgun was recovered after an 18-year-old from Adelanto led deputies on a pursuit in Victorville.
It happened on Wednesday, February 9, 2022, at about 12:43 pm, when deputies from the Victorville Police Department attempted a traffic stop on a silver 2006 Dodge Charger.
Sheriff’s spokeswoman Amanda Paslak told VVNG the driver later identified as Coffee Brown, a resident of Adelanto, did not comply and a pursuit ensued.

Deputies searched the area and located the suspect as well as a handgun. Sheriff’s officials did not say if the gun was thrown during the pursuit or found inside the vehicle.
