PLYMOUTH – A Bristol man has pleaded guilty to a robbery charge stemming from a Plymouth arrest.

Kelly Nixon, 31, took a plea deal this week in New Britain Superior Court and remains held on $60,000 bond while he awaits sentencing.

Nixon was first arrested in October 2020 after both state and Manchester police found him in the attic loft of an apartment in Ashford. Authorities had to force entry into the building after he refused to come out, according to police. Nixon was captured after falling from a ceiling crawl space, police said.

At the time of his arrest, authorities said Nixon was suspected of committing numerous robberies throughout the state, including one in Plymouth.

Nixon this week pleaded guilty to one count of attempted first-degree robbery – a felony. The charge stems from a robbery reported in Plymouth on Oct. 19, 2020. He was not charged in that robbery until last September. No additional details about the Plymouth case were immediately available Friday. 

Nixon is due back in New Britain court on April 1. He could be sentenced as early as that proceeding.
