The cops chased a man and a teen through Evergreen Terrace before arresting them Thursday evening.
Police captured the older of the two about 7:15 p.m. The man, 22-year-old Kenneth Smith of 91 Bradford Road, was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of cannabis and criminal trespass. Smith had cocaine and marijuana in his pockets, police said.
Smith was carted down to the Will County jail.
The 17-year-old allegedly managed to elude the police a little bit longer than Smith but in the end was caught as well. While he was making a run for it, police said, he tossed away a handgun.
The teen was charged with the unlawful use of a weapon, the unlawful possession of ammunition, possession of a firearm without an owner's identification card, criminal trespassing and obstructing a police officer.
The teen was taken to River Valley Juvenile Detention Center.
