On Friday, St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies booked Kenneth Dixon Jr., 35, of St. Rose for the January burglary of a residence on West Eighth Street in Reserve.

Sheriff Mike Tregre said investigators sent evidence collected from the crime scene to the Louisiana State Police Crime Laboratory for analysis.

“Based on the examination results, detectives identified Dixon as a suspect for the burglary and obtained a judicial court-ordered arrest warrant,” Tregre said in a release.

Dixon, who was in custody in St. Charles Parish, was transferred to the St. John the Baptist Parish Sherman Walker Correctional Center and booked with simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling, simple criminal damage to property, violation of probation/parole and on a fugitive warrant for Jefferson Parish.

He remains in custody in lieu of a $16,500 bond.

Dixon has been arrested 13 times in St. John Parish since November 2002.
