But police said Dickerson showed up on the officers’ radar again, this time after a home invasion was reported on Woodtree Lane. A homeowner said the man used a brick to break out a window and come inside, according to Flynn.
“When he entered the home, he was confronted by an armed homeowner,” he said. “Dickerson fled from the homeowner and led police on a foot chase before being arrested.”
He was taken into custody about 5:30 a.m. Detectives are now investigating to determine a motive for the alleged “crime spree,” Flynn said.
In addition to the home invasion charge and two counts of second-degree hijacking, Dickerson is facing misdemeanor charges of obstruction and criminal trespass.
