COLUMBIA — Boone County deputies arrested three men Friday night on Limoges Drive, after a car chase that led to the recovery of two handguns.
The deputies chased a car that did not stop when ordered to for a license violation, according to a Boone County Sheriff’s Department press release. The vehicle turned into the Woods Mill subdivision, and the deputy saw two handguns thrown out of the car’s window.
The car also hit two mailboxes, breaking one in half. Three people left the car and ran on foot when the car stopped. Police recovered the handguns, and discovered one had been reported stolen.
Deputies arrested Jamin Miller, 18, of Columbia, on suspicion of resisting arrest, careless and imprudent driving, leaving the scene of an accident, operating a motor vehicle without a driver’s license, failure to provide proof of insurance, failure to register a motor vehicle, and operating a vehicle between April 1 and November 1 with studded tires. Miller’s bond was set at $2,344.
Evan Tillman, 18, of Columbia, was arrested on suspicion of receiving stolen property, felony resisting arrest and littering, with a total bond of $9,500.
Khalil Brown, 17, of Kansas City, was arrested on suspicion of felony resisting arrest and littering, as well as an out-of-county warrant for first-degree assault. His bond was set at $5,000.
As of Saturday morning, Miller had posted bond, but Tillman and Brown had not and were still in jail, said Cpl. John Ennenbach from the Boone County Sheriff's Department.
