Los Angeles: A few months back LAPD Pacific Division requested the assistance of Gang and Narcotics Division/United States Marshal Apprehension Task Force in locating a wanted “Attempt Murder” suspect. Based on initial investigation it appeared the suspect had fled to Memphis, Tennessee.

Detectives from the Task Force wrote several search warrants to help locate suspect Dixon. When the Marshal’s Task Force served the warrant in Tennessee, Dixon had fled the location already. Detectives continued to write more search warrants for phones, social media and other electronics associated with suspect Dixon.

On Dec 16, 2022, detectives learned Dixon was possibly hiding in West Virginia. Detectives coordinated with the West Virginia United States Marshal Task Force and conducted surveillance on a residence where Dixon was believed to be inside. Detectives gain intel that suspect Dixon was possibly in possession of several high-power firearms.

West Virginia Marshal’s Task Force contacted the local police department SWAT Team to assist in arresting Dixon. Dixon was arrested without incident.


Weapons recovered at the time of Dixon’s arrest.
