Cigarette ties Salem man to April burglary case

SALEM, IL — A 24-year-old Salem man has been arrested after DNA from a cigarette reportedly tied him to the scene of a burglary in April of last year. According to Salem police, a traffic stop Wednesday led to the arrest of passenger Dustin Taylor on charges of residential burglary while a passenger in a traffic stop on Wednesday.

The cigarette was reportedly found at the home in the 200 block of South Castle that had been forcibly entered. The home had been ransacked with considerable damage as well as items stolen. The driver of the car stopped Wednesday was 33-year-old Michelle Huggins. She was arrested for driving under the influence of drugs and possession of a controlled substance for a small amount of fentanyl allegedly found in the vehicle after the Salem K9 reportedly alerted on the vehicle.

Both Taylor and Huggins were taken to the Marion County Jail to await the formal filing of charges and the setting of bail.
