BATON ROUGE - Two were taken into custody after deputies watched them toss what appeared to be drugs and a gun from their car during a pursuit Tuesday afternoon.

The brief chase unfolded shortly before 3 p.m. when an East Baton Rouge sheriff's deputy tried to stop a gold Mercedes for a traffic violation. The pursuit ended on Winbourne Avenue near Webb Drive. 

The sheriff's office said deputies had found the gun that was tossed from the car, but they were still looking for the apparent drugs. 

It wasn't immediately clear what charges those involved in the chase might face.
