ALFRED, Maine - A Lebanon man indicted on 11 felony theft counts in July and another in January faces five more indictments from a March grand jury.

In the most recent indictment Richard A. Dixon Jr. , 34, of 308 Chick Road, is charged in two separate cases, one in July that included a burglary, theft and theft by deception in North Berwick; and one that occurred in June that involved a burglary and theft that also occurred in North Berwick.

The January indictment was for Dixon's alleged involvement in the theft of more than $1,000 in an incident that occurred on Sept. 30 in Lebanon, according to court records.

On Aug. 19 Dixon was arrested after allegedly promising to fix another man's two vehicles than turning them in at a Rochester auto recycler to be crushed for cash.

Dixon was charged with theft by unauthorized taking or transfer, a Class C felony in connection with the August case.

At the time of that arrest Dixon was already serving time at the Alfred Jail after being arrested in July on Chick Road for allegedly driving as a habitual offender as well as a probation violation.

Meanwhile, Dixon faces up to 55 years in prison stemming from his July indictment on 11 theft charges, which occurred between July 2014 and January of this year.

Those charges were filed by Sanford Police for thefts that allegedly occurred in Sanford.

Dixon also faces an additional five years on the July operating after suspension charge.

The indictments handed down this week could result in 30 years additional prison time.

Dixon is currently incarcerated at the Maine Correctional Center in Windham.

The York County grand jury indictments were handed down Wednesday and released today.

An indictment is not an indication of guilt, only that a grand jury has found sufficient evidence to move forward to trial.
