Cedar Lake police arrested a man Saturday who threatened to set his wife on fire as she slept and kill as many people as possible at a nearby elementary school.

The Gary "Post Tribune" reports authorities found 47 guns and ammunition in his home. Prosecutors charged Von Meyer, 60, with felony intimidation and misdemeanor domestic battery and resisting law enforcement.

Meyer's property is within 1,000 feet of a local elementary school. Police increased security presence at all schools in the area Friday as a precaution.
