Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

If we've said it once, we've said it a million times: do not throw incriminating evidence from your car during a high speed chase.

The latest people to not listen to this sage piece of wisdom were three individuals fleeing police after a routine traffic stop, reports the Daily News. After being pulled over at about 10:15 p.m. yesterday in West Covina, the trio sped away from officers, and in doing so, threw a bag full of guns onto the side of the road.

They were soon overtaken by police and the driver, a woman, was arrested. One male passenger then fled on foot, and the other got back in the car for a second chase.

He didn't get far, though -- about ten minutes after speeding away, he hit a tight turn and crashed into a barrier in front of a liquor store in Industry. He then took off on foot and was arrested about an hour later.
