A Canadian man wanted for murder north of the border has pleaded guilty after he was found be be illegally possessing 67 firearms in Minnesota.

Dayne Adrian Sitladeen, 29, pleaded guilty to possessing a firearm as an alien illegally or unlawfully in the U.S. on Wednesday in U.S. District Court.

Sitladeen is also known in Toronto as the rapper Yung Lava, who the National Post reports has been wanted since May 2019 in connection to a fatal shooting of a man in west Toronto, the same year he appeared in a documentary with Drake that denounced the city's gun violence.

Sitladeen and a co-defendant Muzamil Aden Addow were stopped by Minnesota State Patrol on Jan. 10 near Fergus Falls. The two were reportedly traveling between 95 and 100 miles per hour in a truck with Texas license plates, according to court documents.

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.
