Arrest Made in Burglary Case

December 8th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

On Monday, 12/07/2015, Investigators with the Allegany County Combined Criminal Investigation Unit (C3I) arrested 28 year old Travis James Dixon, of Lonaconing, in connection with a burglary which occurred at the Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy on Main Street in Lonaconing. The Maryland State Police responded to the pharmacy on 12/02/2015 after being notified that a burglary had just occurred, shortly after the business had closed for the day. The C3I Unit was notified, and responded to assist in the investigation. A review of surveillance video showed a single male suspect breaking a glass window in the front door at approximately 6:40 PM, entering the pharmacy, and removing prescription medications before fleeing the business on foot. The suspect was wearing a hooded jacket, which he had pulled over his head in an attempt to hide his face. A complete description of the clothing worn by the suspect was obtained by Investigators through review of the surveillance video. Photos from the video surveillance were posted on various social media sites with requests for assistance from the public in identifying the suspect. Law enforcement received several tips. Numerous interviews were also conducted, ultimately leading Investigators to develop Dixon as a suspect. As a result, C3I Investigators obtained an arrest warrant for Dixon. In addition, at the time of his arrest, Investigators, with the assistance of the Maryland State Police, and the C3I Narcotics Task Force, served a search warrant at Dixon’s residence in Lonaconing. At that time Investigators recovered several of the items reported stolen, as well as the clothing being worn by Dixon at the time of the burglary. Dixon has been charged with Burglary, Theft, Malicious Destruction of Property, and related charges. He was taken before a District Court Commissioner for an initial appearance, and is currently being held at the Allegany County Detention Center on $60,000.00 bond, pending his next court appearance.
