ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY, Md. — Twin brothers have been arrested after disguising themselves as painters for several years to steal victims' belongings once inside their home.

On January 9, an investigation was initiated into a theft that occurred in the Annapolis area of Eastern District. During the course of that investigation, detectives identified and charged Jason Nixon and Jared Nixon for the thefts and burglaries.

Detectives have uncovered that there may be several other victims, as these thefts have been occurring over the last several years.

Police say Jason and Jared Nixon market themselves as painters, and once they enter the home under that pretense, they steal jewelry, electronics, and power tools.

Anyone who has used Jason or Jared Nixon to paint their house or for any other service and is potentially missing personal belongings are urged to contact police at 410-222-6145.
