Man With 47 Guns Arrested After School Threat

CEDAR LAKE, Ind. (December 16, 2012)--An Indiana man who had 47 guns and ammunition in his home was in custody Sunday after a threat to kill people at an elementary school nearby.

Cedar Lake officers were sent to the home of Von I. Meyer, 60, early Friday after a threat to set his wife on fire.

A police statement said Meyer also said he would enter Jane Ball Elementary School and "kill as many people as he could."

Authorities found 47 guns and ammunition worth more than $100,000.

Prosecutors filed felony intimidation charges against Meyer on Saturday, one day after the massacre at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn.

He was held without bond.

Cedar Lake is about 45 miles southeast of Chicago.
