NJ dot com and further to our earlier report
A Saddle Brook man found with more than 300 pounds of gunpowder and 195 firearms in his township home after his wife stabbed him over the summer was indicted Tuesday on weapons charges, authorities said.
Robert J. Lintner, 65, was charged in a 10-count indictment with having five illegal assault rifles and 65 outlawed high-capacity ammunition magazines, Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said in a statement. Authorities said three of the seized rifles were submachine guns.
The seized weapons included a Sten 9mm machine gun, an Auto Ordnance Corp. Thompson submachine gun and a US Carbine M1 short assault rifle, according to the indictment.
Bergen County Police Department bomb technicians removed the hundreds of pounds of black and smokeless gunpowder from Lintner’s Washington Street home in August, the prosecutor said. The legal limit of black gunpowder that can be stored residentially is 50 pounds and 100 pounds for the smokeless variety.
