Indiana Man With 47 Guns Arrested After Threat On School

An Indiana man was arrested Saturday after allegedly threatening to kill people at an elementary school near his home, the AP reports. Police officers later found 47 guns and ammunition hidden in his home. The man had allegedly threatened to”kill as many people as he could” at the school.

Von. I. Meyer, 60, of Cedar Lake, was arrested Saturday after prosecutors filed formal charges of felony intimidation, domestic battery and resisting law enforcement against him. He was being held Sunday without bond at the Lake County Jail, pending an initial hearing on the charges, police said in a statement.

 

Cedar Lake Police officers were called to Meyer’s home early Friday after he allegedly threatened to set his wife on fire once she fell asleep, the statement said.
