FREEPORT: Grand Bahama Police seized almost $600,000 worth of illegal drugs and arrested two men, one of whom was shot during a high-speed chase and shootout with officers.

Assistant Superintendent Hector Delva said police are searching for a third man who escaped after the vehicle being pursued by officers crashed into a tree.

According to reports, DEU officers were on patrol around 11.25pm on Saturday when they observed a white 2000 Chevy Astro van exiting Magellan Road.

The occupants were acting in a suspicious manner so officers pursued the vehicle and a chase ensued.

ASP Delva said there was an exchange of gunfire between the suspects and police.

The driver of the Astro van eventually lost control of the vehicle and collided into a tree on Tarleton Road, where two suspects were apprehended. A third fled into bushes.
