Harrington Police have arrested a wanted man after receiving word he was hiding in a local home.
The arrest was made June 26, said police spokesman Lt. Earl K. Brode.
Members of the Harrington Police Department, the Delaware State Police Governor's Task Force and probation and parole officers went to the home in the unit block of Ward Street after receiving an anonymous tip that fugitive Sean N. Cornwell, 22, was there, Brode said.
Cornwell was wanted on an active warrant filed by Harrington Police and also on a violation of probation warrant out of Kent County Superior Court.
Given consent to search the home, police found Cornwell hiding under a bed in an upstairs bedroom. Cornwell was arrested after initially refusing to cooperate with police.
He was charged with theft under $1,500, resisting arrest and violation of probation, then committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution, Georgetown, in default of a $13,000 secured bond.
