A Suffolk man who in December was acquitted of bomb threats at King’s Fork High School has found himself in trouble with the law again.

Abdul Dshawn Dixon, 20, was arrested Wednesday and charged in connection with two residential break-and-enters that took place Jan. 10, city spokeswoman Diana Klink said.

One of the incidents was in the 200 block of North Seventh Street and the other in the 600 block of Cummings Drive. A gaming system, video games, tennis shoes and miscellaneous pieces of jewelry were taken, Klink said.

Dixon is currently being held without bond at Western Tidewater Regional Jail, Klink said.
