EPD officers find cocaine and a handgun after chasing down two men who ran away from them on South Elliot Street.

Police say they were trying to talk to 22 year-old Todd Covington and 18 year-old Dugniqio Forest about an investigation but they took off running when the officer got out of his patrol car.

Both were later caught by assisting officers. Investigators say they found cocaine inside Covington's pocket.

The gun was found near where the pursuit took place but neither men were charged with having a weapon.
