After a brief foot chase, Taylor was taken into custody and officers located a semi-automatic handgun. Further investigation revealed that the semi-automatic handgun was stolen and Taylor had three outstanding warrants.

The Gun Squad Unit executed a search warrant on the Chevy Malibu and located 26 grams of marijuana.
