On 2/25/13, a report was made of a b/m stealing a bottle of malt liquor from a store located at 2066 SW Silver Springs Blvd. When confronted by store personnel, a struggle ensued and the suspect was able to still flee with the item.

Once in custody, Taylor was taken to the Ocala Police Department where he was interviewed by Detective Michael Bowman. During the course of this investigation, Taylor was also identified as the suspect who had stolen a bicycle from Target, 2000 SW College Rd., on this date, 2/26/13.

Upon being transported to the Marion County Jail, Taylor was charged by Detective Bowman with one count of Strong Arm Robbery, by Officer Russell with one count of Resisting without Violence and one count of Carrying a Concealed Weapon, and by Officer Keith Jarvis with one count of Felony Retail Theft - Petit.
