YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: Authorities seized three guns from a 68-year-old Teaneck auto detailer while arresting him on charges of threatening a bank clerk yesterday.

An employee at the Chase Bank branch on Ayers Court told responding Teaneck officers just after 1 o’clock yesterday afternoon that John Heywang “had made several threatening statements while conducting business at the bank,” Capt. John A. Faggello said this morning.

“One of the statements made reference to a weapon,” he said, without elaborating.

A law enforcement source told CLIFFVIEW PILOT that Heywang claimed to have “the guns and ammo to hurt over 3,000 people.”

The self-professed chemist left but was grabbed minutes later by New Milford police at his Heavenly Bodies auto detailing business in their town after an alert was broadcast for his black Mercedes Benz GL 500.

They seized the weapons there, Faggello said.

Heywang, a Dumont native who has produced liquid glass polish and finish for race cars and other high-performance vehicles, has touted himself as “the Chief Scientist and CEO of Liquid Glass Enterprises, Inc. and Liquid Glass Laboratories, Inc.,” which he said “provides legendary liquid glass products for the automotive, marine, aircraft and commercial industrial market.”

Teaneck police charged him with making terroristic threats and released him on a court summons to appear next Wednesday.
