Police: Arrest Might Have Foiled Street Justice Plot

Police said a potential threat on Indianapolis' streets was caught Wednesday before he could kill.

Anthony Taylor, 46, was pulled over along East 38th Street Wednesday night after officers said he was speeding.

What officers said they found inside his car was much more alarming than a minor traffic violation.

Investigators said a gun, bulletproof vest, clippings of suspects in recent shootings, alcohol and drugs were found in the car.

"We're actually concerned because here we have a gentleman who's wearing a bulletproof vest. He's got binoculars in the vehicle. He's got guns in his vehicle, paper clippings of someone who's wanted for murder," said Marion County sheriff's Capt. Phil Burton.

"That, in itself, is just odd and strange and very dangerous if someone is in fact targeting someone."

Burton said Taylor was also wearing black gloves and sunglasses when he was pulled over.
