TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) -

A man accused of threatening to burn his family and kill police officers will be held on a $45,000 bond.

Police say Randy Keil poured gas on the home at 712 Bartley Place and said he was going to set it on fire.

Keil’s mother, brother, and sister were all inside the house.

When the police arrived to the home, Keil ran into the woods and hid from police.

He allegedly told police multiple times that he was going to shoot and kill them. Police say Keil told them he was going to pull a gun out from his waistband and told officers to “be ready.”

"Thankfully we had a K9 unit out with us," Lt. Joe Heffernan of TPD said. "We warned him one more time to come out, and he again threatened the officers saying he had a gun and a knife other things like that so we deployed the K9."

After he was arrested, police discovered eleven marijuana plants growing in the basement of the home.

Keil faces a slew of charges including domestic violence, threatening to cause physical harm and recklessly resisting arrest. 

His preliminary hearing is set for June 7.
