The chlorine found in the vehicle was a commercially available type used to disinfect swimming pools, the news station said.
The New Llano apartment complex where Taylor lived was evacuated as agents conducted a search of his unit. Nothing suspicious was initially found, but a second sweep of the apartment turned up a pipe bomb and other materials, the Town Talk reported.
The pipe bomb was deactivated by a Louisiana State Police hazmat team, Vernon Parish Sheriff’s Office officials said at the time.
Taylor, who was on active duty at the time of his arrest, was also indicted in September on a federal child pornography charge after inappropriate material was found on an iPod belonging to him, the newspaper said.
He was due to go to trial on that charge last month, but his lawyer obtained a continuance because of the ongoing federal investigation.
Taylor remains in federal custody, KALB reported. His bail was set at $1.5 million.
