AMSTERDAM, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Saturday arrested Jaji Dukuray, 25, and Kyle Dery, 22, both from Amsterdam, N.Y. after a Sheriff’s Deputy on patrol was alerted of a stolen car that passed him.

Police say the Deputy tried to stop the car, but the driver tried to avoid the Deputy by turning off the car lights and pulling into the parking lot of a business. The car was eventually found and stopped in the parking lot where Dukuray and Dery were taken into custody.

During the stop, police reportedly found a handgun inside the car as well.
