"Serial Library Exposer" arrested for theft

A “Serial Library Exposer” is back in jail this time for a more serious crime in the eyes of the law.  Nathaniel Dixon, 31 is arrested for two counts of felony theft and is booked at the Sarpy County Jail.


On Wednesday, the Papillion Police Dept. says Dixon broke into a home in the Tara Heights neighborhood, and stole dozens of pieces of jewelry.  They put out an alert when neighbors saw the suspect jumping through yards near Hogan Drive and Beadle Street.  Dixon was arrested the next day with the jewelry inside a pillow case in his backpack.  Police also recovered a stolen car.


“It's good for all parties involved not only for the victims to get their property back, we're likely talking thousands of dollars in property most likely, but it also reassures citizens we're putting dangerous people away the best that we can from our end,” said Papillion Deputy Chief Chris Whitted.

Dixon is the “Serial Library Exposer” that 3 News Now has covered for almost 2 years.  He's been convicted of masturbating in front of people at libraries in Papillion, La Vista, and Omaha and awaits trial this month for doing it at the South Omaha and Millard libraries.

Dixon served 3 year in prison in 2006 for burglary, 2 years in prison for possession of a deadly weapon and theft, and 2 months in prison for attempted burglary in 2016.

Sharon Mueller was eating dinner when she saw him running through her yard.  Mueller says it's probably time for a lengthy punishment.

"If he's too lazy to go out and find things to do for himself that he's got to go out and rob people's houses and expose himself,” Mueller explained. "He probably deserves it."

Deputy Chief Whitted wanted to thank Papillion residents for their diligence and the officers who were able to track him down quickly.

Dixon will have his bond set on Monday.
