FARMINGTON — Police are looking for a 21-year-old man who is wanted in connection with an attempted burglary at a mobile home earlier this month.

The man, Miguel Cedeno, is accused of breaking a window with a shotgun in a failed attempt to break into the Lamkin Lane mobile home on Feb. 14, according to a Farmington Police Department news release.

A couple was home during the burglary and told police they scared off two men trying to get inside the mobile home early that morning. Police would not say Monday whether they have another suspect besides Cedeno.

Cedeno is approximately 5 feet, 9 inches tall and 140 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes, according to the release. Police did not know where Cedeno resides, saying he was last know to have lived in several western Maine communities.

In the release about their investigation, police said they believe Cedeno cut himself when he broke the mobile home’s window. He left behind a substantial amount of blood before driving off with another man in a small car, which had a loud exhaust.

About 25 minutes after the break-in, Cedeno showed up at the emergency room at Franklin Memorial Hospital, where he sought treatment for a cut to his hand.

Police questioned Cedeno at the hospital and he denied being in the Lamkin Lane area that morning. He volunteered to give a DNA sample and police have since matched that sample to the blood taken at the crime scene.

Police got an arrest warrant for Cedeno based on the DNA evidence, which was analyzed at the Maine State Police Crime Lab in Augusta. He faces a felony charge of attempted burglary.

David Nelson III and his girlfriend, Holly Norton, the couple living at the 106 Lamkin Lane mobile home, said they awoke to someone gently knocking on their front door around 5 a.m.

Nelson, 23, yelled he was calling police and the two men tried to pry open the locked front door, which has no windows, before they smashed a window on the side of the home, the couple said in an interview.

As the men tried to jump through the window, Nelson and Norton, 18, continued to scream that the police were on their way. After a few seconds, the men ran off and sped away in a car that was parked nearby, the couple said.

The news release asked that anyone with information about Cedeno’s whereabouts contact Farmington police at 778-6311.
