INDIANAPOLIS - An Indiana man is set up to serve nearly 18 years in prison after he was reportedly found stalking two women with a bag full of kidnapping supplies.
The Indiana U.S. Attorney's Office said O.C. Todd, 54, of Indianapolis, was sentenced to 215 months in federal prison after being found guilty to illegal gun possession in July.
Court documents said in April of 2013, Indianapolis police (IMPD) headed to the 1600 block of East Orange Street (southeast side of the city) on a report of a man stalking two women with binoculars.
When IMPD got there, they said they saw Todd standing near a pickup truck, and Todd dropped a bag and sped away. Officers were able to stop and detain him.
IMPD said inside the bag Todd had dropped was a loaded .38-caliber pistol, a roll of duct tape, two large nylon zip ties and baby oil. Todd told investigators he was on that side of Indianapolis looking for work, and because gasoline was cheaper.
The U.S. Attorney's Office said Todd's lengthy criminal history contributed to his longer sentence:
- Five counts of criminal confinement (Marion County, 1980)
- Resisting law enforcement (Marion County, January 2000)
- Resisting law enforcement (Marion County, May 2000)
