TORONTO - A man who stashed a gun at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport in what may have been a terrorist dry run admitted in court he possessed weapons, drugs, security guard uniforms and unsuccessfully tested a small bomb in Toronto.

Leslie Tsui, 28, pleaded guilty Friday to weapons and drug possession charges in a chain of events that unfolded when he ripped off taxi driver Tuhel Ahmed around 1 a.m. on Feb. 25, 2013.

When Ahmed and airport security staff pursued Tsui — after he short-changed the cabbie $7 on a $10 cab ride from Fairmont Royal York hotel to the Island airport — he dashed into a men’s room.
