V O Taylor

Arrested in Pulaski County, AR on July 31, 2014

A burglary suspect was arrested Thursday morning after residents held him at gunpoint for police, according to an arrest report.

V O Taylor, 54, was arrested on a charge of residential breaking or entering at a home in the 1400 block of Center Street.

According to a Little Rock Police Department report, officers arrived about 4:20 a.m. and found Taylor being held at gunpoint by the residents. They said he had broken into a locked "shed/shop," the report noted.

"When the resident advised the shed was 'locked,' Taylor said, 'no it was unlocked,'" police wrote in the report.

Taylor was then arrested and taken to the Pulaski County jail, where he remained Thursday morning with bail on the charge set at $5,000.

The report said a flashlight and tools were recovered at the scene.

Taylor was also being held for the parole system. Online records show he is on standard parole in Little Rock through 2015 and his criminal history includes 2009 convictions in Pulaski County for commercial burglary and theft of property.

A court date in the latest arrest is set Wednesday.

Another example that shows how it is just WRONG for citizens to have guns. They created a hostile work environment for that poor guy just trying to earn a living.

And besides that, we all know it's just absolutely impossible for those people's kids to survive with them having a deadly weapon in the home. I think they should be charged with child abuse.

That is Sarcasm, in case you aren't really sure. Glad I live in Arkansas where only a small loony minority will actually think I am serious, and actually agree with crap like that.

Should have killed him. He will be back at it when he gets out of jail.
