Man Accused of Breaking Into Home, Taking Resident's Vehicle for Ride in Cromwell

Cromwell police have arrested a man who is accused of breaking into a home, taking keys to a vehicle that belonged to the resident and taking the vehicle for a ride early Saturday morning.

Officers responded to a 911 call from a resident who said they returned home to find an unwanted man inside their home.

When police arrived, they said the man, later identified as 22-year-old Zachery Ellish, of Bristol, began to fight with officers as they attempted to arrest him. Officers were able to get control and he was taken into custody.

Investigators later determined that Ellish had forced entry into the home, where he found keys to the resident's vehicle. Police said he then went for a ride in the vehicle before returning and re-entering the home.

Ellish is facing multiple charges including burglary, stalking, criminal mischief, criminal violation of a protective order, criminal trespass and assault of a public safety officer.

He is being held on a $250,000 bond and will be in court on Tuesday.
