That's how many this guy had when he made a threat about shooting up a school on Friday! His rights, his rights!
A Cedar Lake, Ind. man who police said had 47 guns and ammunition hidden in his home was arrested after threatening to set his wife on fire and "kill as many people as he could" at an elementary school near his home Friday, police said.
Early Friday morning, police were called to the home of Von I. Meyer, 60, in 9300 block of West 133rd Avenue, after it was reported that he threatened to set his wife on fire after she fell asleep, according to a statement from Cedar Lake police.
Meyer also said he was going to enter the Jane Ball Elementary School less than 1,000 feet from his home and "kill as many people as he could before police could stop him," the statement said.
Police notified school officials and security measures were taken at all local schools on Friday, the statement said.
Hidden in his 2story, "historic" home, authorities found 47 guns and ammunition with an estimated value of over 100,000, the statement said. Many of the guns seized during the search were collector's items, the statement said.
Saturday morning, formal charges were filed against Meyer, who police said is a known member of motorcycle gang, and a search warrant was issued.
That afternoon, West 133rd Avenue was closed while authorities entered Meyer's home, which is connected to the school by a series of trails and walking paths in a wooded area, and took custody of Meyer without incident.
He was charged with four counts of felony intimidation, one count of misdemeanor domestic battery, and two counts of misdemeanor resisting law enforcement, the statement said.
Meyer was taken to the Lake County, Ind., Jail where he was being held without bail pending an initial hearing. It was not immediately known when the hearing will be, police said Sunday.
Cedar Lake is about 45 miles south of Chicago near the IndianaIllinois state line.
