Police on Saturday seized a stockpile of military gear and illegal weapons from the home of a Long Island pizza delivery man who called in threats to his former high school.
Robert Csak, 32, faces more than a dozen weapons charges after police raided his Lindenhurst home. Suffolk County police said they found 19 firearms in the home, including nine illegal assault weapons, as well as high capacity magazines, military and ballistics equipment and night vision goggles. One of the assault rifles had a bump stock, the device that makes rifles fire automatically, which was used by the gunman who killed 58 people and wounded more than 500 hundred in the Las Vegas shooting last October.
Police said Csak left a half-dozen threats on the voicemail box for Summit School, which helps students with emotional and behavior issues. He attended the school in 2002. Csak has worked as a pizza deliveryman and, according to the New York Daily News, he filed for bankrputcy in December 2016. At the time, he reported little income other than Social Security and a montly stipend from his father.
Authorities tracked down Csak using school records and caller ID and then dispatched officers to conduct a welfare check of his home, according to the Suffolk County Police Department. Csak was not home, but a landlord let police into the sparsely furnished apartment.
Officers also uncovered a tactical shotgun, silencer, crossbow and bulletproof vest.
After seizing the weapons, police eventually located Csak in the nearby town of West Babylon, where he was arrested.
Csak apparently still nursed a grudge against a 45-year-old employee of the Summit School, according to the Clarkstown Police Department, which initially responded to the complaint. The police department reported that the targeted staff member “feared for the safety of the students and staff and also questioned the well-being of the caller.”
