Ezell Boulevard Carolina Footcare on John B. White Sr. Boulevard Advantage Healthcare on John B. White Sr. Boulevard Reidville Animal Hospital on John B. White Sr. Boulevard Westgate Family Physicians on Powell Mill Road Porter Chiropractic on E Kennedy Street Robert Ben Culp Dental on John B. White Sr. Boulevard Advanced Therapy Solutions on Winchester Place James Dunn Surgical Clinic on North Pine StreetPolice said James Aaron Dixon, who is currently incarcerated in the Myrtle Beach area, has been charged in the string of Upstate crimes.

Investigators developed Dixon as a suspect after they said the burglaries mirrored similar cases in the Winston-Salem area where Dixon also resided. Dixon also has previous convictions for similar crimes in North Carolina and was wanted for a pharmacy burglary in Spartanburg in August 2016.

Dixon is charged with 22 crimes in connection with the Spartanburg burglaries.
