Officers arrested suspects after a pursuit and seized their weapons, according to a Fontana Police Department Facebook post on May 1.

Patrol officers attempted a traffic stop and upon approaching the driver, the vehicle immediately fled. After a pursuit, the suspect vehicle ended up crashing, but no persons were injured from the traffic collision or pursuit.

One suspect ran from the vehicle and threw a backpack shortly before being apprehended by officers. The backpack contained an AK-47 style rifle, a handgun and evidence of illegal drug sales, police said.
