Toronto police say that on Saturday, Sept. 7, officers went to check on a home in the Meadowbank Road and Cowley Avenue area after a number of calls were made about a loud party at a short-term rental home.
Police allege that officers found a man sleeping in a car with a gun on his lap, and subsequently arrested him.
Police say that two other men fled into the backyards of neighbouring properties and that a search uncovered another firearm that had been discarded.
