SARASOTA COUNTY, FL (WFLA) -

Sarasota Police officers who pulled over a car for a possibly illegal window tint found more than they bargained for inside.

Street Crime Unit officers pulled the car over on Putnam Drive about 5 p.m.  When the car stopped, a few people got out and started running away from the officers, according to the police report.

After a short chase, police caught the men. Officers said they found three guns, crack cocaine and marijuana in the car.

Police arrested Jalen J. Bellamy, 21, and Terry L. McDonald, Jr., 21.  They're charged with being felons in possession of firearms, as well as other crimes.
