Addow then handed a State Trooper an Ontario, Canada driver’s license with a false name. After officers smelled marijuana and received suspicious statements from Sitladeen, they searched the vehicle.

Officers found 67 firearms, along with multiple pistol magazines, 15 of which were high capacity pistol magazines. One magazine was partially loaded with live rounds.

The National Post reports that Addow is also wanted in connection with the kidnapping of a wealthy Chinese student in Ontario in 2019.
