    According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, Steven C. Swanson, 57, called them and said he was planning to go to Los Angeles with two handguns next month to kill the former Victoria's Secret supermodel, whom he referred to as his "soulmate."

    Swanson said he was going to get on a plane at Barnstable Municipal Airport in Hyannis, Mass., travel to Boston's Logan International Airport and then head to Los Angeles to do the deed.

    When local police arrived at his home, he switched up his story a bit, saying he was going to Los Angeles to "rescue his wife, a Victoria's Secret model." He also claimed to be a federal agent, according to the Cape Cod Times

    Cops found photos of Kerr on Swanson's refrigerator, microwave and bookshelf, according to the site, as well as a pellet gun, according to police.

    Swanson was arrested at 1:57 a.m. Wednesday on suspicion of making a threat concerning a firearm and was held on $2500 bail for his arraignment Thursday morning. 

    He is due back in court July 19 for a pretrial hearing.
