Two men are facing charges and guns and ammunition were recovered after a Broward Sheriff's deputy spotted a stolen Porsche in Pompano Beach, officials said.
The incident happened late Wednesday when the deputy spotted the 2021 Porsche Macan, which had been stolen in Miramar, in the area of West Atlantic Boulevard and South Cypress Road, officials said.
The vehicle was tracked down by BSO Aviation to a residence at 101 Northwest 30th Avenue in Pompano Beach where the driver, 21-year-old Adolph Giunta, and his passenger, 18-year-old Jamaal Sims, exited the vehicle and fled toward the home, officials said.
As Sims exited the vehicle, he was seen throwing a firearm onto the roof of an adjacent building, officials said.
A perimeter was established and deputies detained Giunta and Sims.
When deputies searched the Porsche, they found an AR-15 style rifle fully-loaded with a 40-round magazine, officials said. Giunta was also found to be in possession of a Glock 17 firearm containing a 30-round magazine.
He is now facing charges of grand theft of a motor vehicle and committing a third-degree felony with a weapon.
The firearm discarded on the roof by Sims was recovered and found to be a Glock 19 firearm with one round in the chamber and nine additional rounds on the magazine, officials said.
Sims is facing charges of carrying a concealed firearm, tampering with evidence and trespass conveyance.
