Three men are in custody and a loaded handgun is off the streets after Durham Police investigators tracked down a stolen car taken in a carjacking from a week before.

Police blocked in the vehicle to prevent its escape and the three men were arrested without incident. Police seized a loaded handgun inside the vehicle.

They were all held for bail hearings.
