Toronto police have issued a Canada-wide warrant for a man they believe is tied to an abandoned vehicle found on Dec. 4 with guns in the trunk.

Police said officers on patrol came across a Mercedes that appeared to have jumped the middle curb on Transit Road and came to a stop on the eastbound curb, just west of Allen Road. The vehicle had been abandoned while still running, lights on and doors unlocked.

After inspecting the vehicle, police found a loaded 9mm Norinco pistol, a loaded .45-calibre pistol and a loaded ‘Tec9’ 9mm sub-machine gun.
