CLEVELAND - Police have found a cache of weapons and ammunition in the home of a man arrested after bringing a loaded 9mm Glock pistol and four knives to a late night showing of "The Dark Knight Rises" in Ohio.

The case is the latest in a series of chilling reminders of the massacre in Aurora, Colorado on July 20, when police say James Eagan Holmes opened fire on a crowded midnight showing of the new "Batman" film, killing 12 people and wounding 58 others.

Scott Smith, 37, was arrested Saturday after an off-duty officer approached him and asked to search the large military-type bag he brought into the theater in Westlake, according to Lieutenant Ray Arcuri of the Westlake Police Department.
