Metropolitan Police have confirmed that two men have been charged with firearm offences after an armed police chase on the M2 motorway which ended near Junction 5 on Sunday (19th February) evening.
A number of police cars, including armed officers from the Metropolitan Police's Trident Gang Crime Command, a specialist team tackling gang violence, pursued two vehicles along the motorway London-bound between Faversham and Sittingbourne.
36-year-old Spencer Tapper, from Dagenham and 37-year-old Mahesh Chaitoo, from Southend, have both been charged with conspiracy to possess a firearm with ammunition with intent to endanger life.
Tapper and Chaitoo both appeared before Medway Magistrates' on Monday (20th February). Two women arrested at the scene were bailed, pending further enquiries, until mid-April.
