Two Rhode Island men and a teenager are facing charges after allegedly breaking into an Attleboro home twice within a span of seven hours on Tuesday, according to a report from 7News Boston

Police were dispatched to a home on Peck Street just after 4 a.m. Tuesday after a resident called 911 and said three men had broken into the basement, the news station reported. The resident and another person who was home reportedly locked themselves in a bedroom and monitored the suspects through a live video feed from security equipment. 

The suspects fled the home before law enforcement arrived, according to a police report obtained by the news station. 


Just hours later, the suspects allegedly returned and broke into the basement once more, police said. The suspects, who were later arrested from a traffic stop in Providence, Rhode Island, based on a vehicle description released by investigators, were allegedly looking for marijuana in the home. The intruders did not steal any belongings or injure anyone in the home, 7News reported. 

One of the suspects was later found to be carrying an airsoft pistol that resembled a handgun, according to the police report obtained by 7News. The station also reported that one of the suspects is a cousin of one resident. 

Following their arrest, the suspects were identified as Jalen Ladue, 20, Asuriah Becote, 18, and a 17-year-old from Providence. All three were arrested on fugitive from justice charges. 

Police are working to obtain arrest warrants for home invasion.
