Two Onondaga county men are under arrest after a series of incidents.

New York State Police say troopers were flagged down by a woman who said tat she was being followed by a "suspicious vehicle" as she travelled from Beechwood Avenue onto Old Liverpool Road in Salina, New York at approximately 11:50pm on March 31, 2022.

The troopers are members of the Community Stabilization Unit (CSU).

According to a written release from the New York State Police, as the troopers tried to stop the car, the driver allegedly drove off and refused to stop.

A chase ensued and then ended as the vehicle headed toward the city of Syracuse.

Police say the car was located a few minutes later on Union Place, and the "occupants," according to police, "were seen fleeing on foot. Troopers in the area monitoring the pursuit responded to the scene and set up a perimeter. Two suspects were then quickly located and placed into custody without incident."

The NYSP says they found a loaded 9mm semi-automatic handgun with a high capacity magazine in an alleyway on Union Street.
