WEST BABYLON, N.Y. (WCBS 880) -- Police in Suffolk County went to the home of a man who they said threatened his old school – and they said they discovered a virtual arsenal.

As WCBS 880’s Mike Sugerman reported, Robert Csak, 32, allegedly left six threatening messages with a 45-year-old school staffer at the Summit School for emotionally disturbed students in Upper Nyack.

Clarkstown police interviewed the staffer and notified Suffolk County police, who went to Csak’s Lindenhurst apartment, police said.

They found 19 guns, hundreds of magazines, silencers, bump stocks, night vision goggles, and hand grenades that turned out to be inert, police said.

That was pretty much all they found in the apartment.

"Very sparsely furnished with a plastic table, a plastic chair, and a futon bed and just the guns,” said Suffolk County police Chief Stuart Cameron.

The guns that were found included the types used in mass shootings in both Las Vegas and Colorado, according to Cameron.

Csak was working as a pizza delivery man and had no criminal record, but apparently a tremendous grudge, Cameron said.

"For the fact that he is still remembering a comment that was made to him by a school employee 16 years ago to the fact that he would call the school and make a threat to this individual is very alarming," he said.

Csak is in jail charged with possession of illegal weapons.
