    A Massachusetts man who threatened to kill police officers and possibly himself is in custody, according to authorities.

    Michael Rembisz of Marshfield was charged with threats to commit a crime and threats to commit murder to police officers on Wednesday.

    Marshfield Police Chief Phillip Tavares told NBC10 Boston that Rembisz resisted arrest last week and became angered as a result.

    Investigators say Rembisz's mind started to deteriorate after his arrest Friday on minor charges.

    [NECN]Law Enforcement at Scene Where Suspect Who Threatened Officers Was Arrested

    Officers said they had a reason to believe Rembisz became an anarchist, and was determined to kill police officers and possibly himself.

    "A concerned family member had reported that Michael Rembisz had accumulated weapons and was threatening to kill police officers and harm himself," said Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz.

    On Wednesday, law enforcement forces set up a soft perimeter around his house on Surrey Road before Rembisz fled, leading plain clothes officers to take him down and place him in custody.

    Police found a loaded rifle and handgun in his car. Two more guns and ammunition were found in the home. Rembisz does not have a license to carry.

    "This is amazing. That's all I'm telling you," said Rembisz's father.

    When asked if he knew his son had all of those guns, Rembisz's father said he had nothing to say.

    "We've been dealing with Mr. Rembisz for a number of years. He's very well known to us," said one law enforcement official.

    Neighbors know well his run-ins with police.

    "I hope they lock him up for a long time. I hope his parents sell the house and I hope we get in a nice family," said one neighbor.

    Police are working with federal investigators to figure out how Rembisz got all of the weapons.

    One neighbor said he has had positive interactions with Rembisz.

    "He did the leaves on my lawn. He does great work with his landscaping company. I know he has some run-ins in the past, but who hasn't had troubles in their past, you know?" said neighbor Phil Drounin Jr.

    The district attorney says there is no threat to the public.

    It's unclear if Rembisz has an attorney. He will be in court Thursday.
