Police officers recovered an illegal gun after the suspect bolted near Guapo on Sunday.
Police said at around 4 pm, Sgt Ali, acting Sgt Gunness and other members of South Western Division Task Force, were driving along Field Road, Parryland Village when they saw a man walking along the gravel road holding a gun.
Officers said the suspect dropped the gun and ran off to a forested area.
The officers gave chase but the suspect eluded capture.
The same officers recovered a pump-action shotgun and 18 grammes of cocaine in Cedros during a separate exercise last Friday.
No one was arrested.
