HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP) - A northern New Jersey man who allegedly had a large stash of weapons and gunpowder in his home has been indicted on numerous counts.

Bergen County prosecutors say 65-year-old Robert Lintner, of Saddle Brook, is charged with creating a risk of widespread injury or damage. The 10-count indictment made public Tuesday charges him with three counts of unlawful possession of a machine gun, five counts of unlawful possession of an assault firearm and one count of possession of large capacity ammunition magazines.

Authorities say they found the cache in August, when they responded to his home for a reported domestic dispute in which he allegedly was stabbed by his wife.

A subsequent search uncovered 300 pounds of black gunpowder, dozens of weapons and tens of thousands of rounds of ammunition.
