Robert Csak, 32, is facing more than a dozen weapons charges in New York
A Long Island man has been arrested with an arsenal of illegal weapons after making threatening phone calls to his former high school, according to police.
Robert Csak, 32, is facing more than a dozen weapons charges after cops found the weapons cache in Lindenhurst, New York while investigating reports of the threatening voicemails.
Suffolk County Police say Csak, a pizza delivery driver, used his name in some of the six disturbing messages left Saturday at Summit School in Upper Nyack, a high school for students with emotional and behavioral special needs.
Investigators found that Csak wasn’t home when they arrived to interview him on Sunday, but his landlord let them inside the apartment – where cops made a startling discovery.
Suffolk County Police said they seized this arsenal of 19 firearms from Csak on Saturday
At least nine of the 19 firearms were illegal, including ‘assault weapons’ banned in New York
Cops found more than 200 high-capacity magazines (pictured). New York state law bans magazines that can accept more than 10 rounds
Officers also found a silencer and a bump stock, which increases the fire rate of a semi-auto
‘The apartment was described to me as very sparsely furnished, with a mattress, a plastic table, a plastic chair and the arsenal of weapons that you see before me,’ Suffolk Police Chief Stuart Cameron said at a press conference on Sunday.
In plain view, police saw a tactical shotgun, crossbow, night vision goggles, high-capacity magazines, and an AR-15-style weapon.
After obtaining a search warrant, police found a total of 19 firearms including a Tommy gun, as well as a silencer, more than 200 high-capacity magazines, and a bump stock.
New York state law prohibits magazines with a capacity of more than 10 rounds.
It is unclear if the Tommy gun was fully automatic as the gun was originally designed, or a semi-auto version designed to comply with bans on automatic weapons.
Regardless, police said at least nine of the guns were illegal, including AR-15-style rifles that are illegal in New York state if they both have a pistol grip and accept a detachable magazine.
Among the shocking discoveries was a crossbow and large quantities of ammunition
A box full of shotgun shells is seen among the weaponry seized from Csak’s apartment
Most of the weapons seized were long guns, although there appeared to be a revolver too
A gas mask and shotgun ammunition that were seized in the raid are seen
Cops said that of the 19 firearms seized from the home, nine were illegal in New York
Police also found an additional set of night vision goggles, bulletproof vests, gas masks, and knives.
The messages left at Csak’s former school were specifically directed against a particular employee, police said.
‘From every indication we have now he felt slighted by this individual from an encounter back in 2002 and was carrying a grudge,’ Chief Stuart Cameron said.
Csak attended the school in 2002 and was identified through caller ID and school records, according to police.
After searching his residence, cops stopped Csak’s car at a red light late Saturday and arrested him.
He is being held is due in Suffolk County District Court in Central Islip on Monday
