BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- Police found two loaded guns in a stolen Porsche from Westport that later crashed into a bus in Bridgeport, according to the Connecticut Post.

The 2017 Porsche Macan was spotted driving through a stop sign on James Street in Bridgeport on Saturday, and then running a red light before it crashed into a coach bus, the Connecticut Post reported. Police told the Connecticut Post that 20-year-old Eric Hayes of Bridgeport, as well as a juvenile, got out of the car and fled, while a second juvenile collapsed from an apparent leg injury.

Police managed to track down Hayes and the other juvenile, and all three were taken into custody, the Connecticut Post reported. Inside the car, police found a loaded .40-caliber handgun, as well as a .32-caliber gun on the ground next to the car, according to the Connecticut Post.

Hayes was charged with weapons in a motor vehicle and interfering with police and held on a $50,000 bond, while the juveniles were arrested on gun charges and turned over to state juvenile authorities, the Connecticut Post reported.

Police told the Connecticut Post that Hayes is expected to be charged in connection with the stolen car, as well.
