Indiana man with 47 guns arrested after threatening elementary school
A man in northern Indiana was arrested Saturday after threatening an elementary school near his home.
Cedar Lake police officers found 47 guns and ammunition in the home of 60-year-old Von Meyer following his arrest, according to the Associated Press. Police were called after he allegedly threatened to set his wife on fire and “kill as many people as he could” at the Jane Ball Elementary School less than 1,000 feet from his home.
He was a “known member of the Invaders Motorcycle Gang,” according to police.
Meyer is currently being held in the Lake County Jail without bond. He faces charges of intimidation, domestic battery and resisting law enforcement.
The arrest came just one day after a gunman killed 26 people, including children, at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
