Police charge 3 men with breaking and entering

December 7, 2012

WOONSOCKET – Three men got caught breaking into a house Tuesday after they mistakenly believed no one was home after ringing the doorbell.
The downstairs tenant of the two-family at 387 Park Place was indeed home, however; he simply didn’t answer the doorbell because he didn’t recognize the individual ringing it, he told police.
Moments later, the tenant saw two men scaling the balcony to the second story of the home and he heard their footsteps after they allegedly forced their way in through a window.
