Lincoln- Delaware State Police arrested 45-year-old Elmis Salguero-Sarceno of Lincoln on criminal charges after an incident early Thursday morning.

On February 11, 2021, at approximately 5:09 a.m., troopers responded to Cedar Drive, Lincoln, for a report of a possible burglary in progress. Prior to arrival, troopers were advised a male subject was attempting to force entry into the side door of a residence. Upon troopers arrival to the residence, the resident advised the subject fled the area on foot in an unknown direction.  Through the troopers investigation, foot prints were discovered in the snow leading away from the residence to a shed located on Cubbage Drive. Damage was observed on the shed door and the sound of someone inside could be heard.  Several commands were given by troopers for the subject to exit the shed but the individual failed to comply. Once troopers entered the shed, Elmis Salguero-Sarceno was observed attempting to hide from the troopers.  Elmis was removed from the shed and escorted to outside where he failed to comply with the troopers commands and resisted arrest.
