MIAMI (AP) -- Miami Gardens police are looking to question a 28-year-old man in connection with a bomb scare from an abandoned hearse.

A police flyer said Saturday Lee E. Lewis is wanted on weapons violations. Police are looking to question him after Friday's scare that snarled traffic for hours.

The hearse was found Friday on a street beneath the Palmetto Expressway. When officers looked inside, they saw some firearms or other weapons. Authorities have not yet said what exactly was found, but it was enough to call in the bomb squad.

Police say Lewis recently served time for grand theft auto and drug charges.
