By BBN Staff: Last night at 9:15, police were on mobile patrol on Orchid Street, Santa Elena Town, when cops pursued a black Meilun motorcycle being driven at the time by Joel Sierra, 27, of Santa Elena Town and passenger, Kristy Westby, 24, of the same address.
Upon reaching the intersection of Orchid Street and Mariana Gonzalez street, Sierra lost control of the motor cycle hitting the edge of a culvert.
A silver object dropped from him and it was observed to be a silver and black Ruger P89 .9mm pistol with a black magazine which contained twelve .9mm rounds.
Police have since arrested and charged Sierra and Westby jointly, for the offense of ‘Kept Firearm without a Gun License’ and ‘Kept Ammunition without a Gun License’.
