Man pleads to felony theft



Richard Lynn Nixon, 34, of Hagerstown, pleaded guilty to one count of felony theft Tuesday in Washington County Circuit Court.

One of two men charged in a series of thefts from storage bins and a storage yard last summer, Nixon was jailed without bond pending completion of a pre-sentence investigation.

Washington County Sheriff's deputies charged Nixon with 22 counts each of second- and fourth-degree burglary, one count of felony theft/scheme and two counts of destruction of property, according to court records.

He was taken into custody in connection with incidents at the Farm and Family Store's storage yard at Valley Plaza and 22 units of Valley Storage bins at 17705 W. Washington St., court records said.

Ronnie Eugene Domer, who was already in jail and being held without bond in connection with similar offenses, faces similar charges, court records said.

Domer, 29, of Hagerstown, was charged July 19 with possession of burglary tools, second-degree escape, resisting arrest and two counts of felony theft in connection with thefts at Hagerstown Mini-Storage on Cole Road, deputies said.

As part of Nixon's plea agreement, he will testify when Domer comes to trial, court records said.
