A law enforcement officer says authorities found weapons in the burned-out pickup truck of the former Los Angeles police officer who's wanted in three killings.

The officer spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.

The truck was found Thursday in the San Bernardino Mountains near Big Bear Lake, spurring a massive manhunt for Christopher Dorner in the snowy mountains.

Investigators have been examining the truck to determine if it broke down or was set ablaze as a diversion. Police say the truck had a broken axle. Investigators are trying to determine whether it was already broken when they found it, or whether it was damaged when it was towed away.
