Police said, after the vehicle stopped, one man alighted and identified himself as a police constable.
The man was reportedly asked to produce his identification card but he told members of the police team that he left it at home.
The man was asked if he had a firearm and he said yes.
Police said the man was asked to produce the weapon, but he said he had also left it at home.
