Statement from Senior Deputy Majority Leader Nicholas J. Narducci Jr. Regarding the Recent Rash of Automobile Break-Ins in the Fourth Ward

Over the past several weeks there have been several vehicular break-ins in and around the North End. Over the past week I have reached out to constituents via social media and email with helpful tips, and asking them to share any video surveillance they may have captured.

I am happy to report that last night the Providence Police Department apprehended two suspects on Edgeworth Avenue. They were caught with the help of a homeowner’s surveillance camera, and their awareness and willingness to call the Police. The Providence Police Department acted swiftly and was able to apprehend the suspects after a short foot pursuit.

These individuals also had warrants out for their arrest for allegedly committing similar crimes in Pawtucket. I want to thank the Providence Police Department for the dedication to keeping our neighborhoods safe, and for their efforts in capturing these suspects.

We still need to be vigilant and remember to lock our car doors, park in a well-lit area, keep our windows closed, and make sure that any valuables left in the car are hidden out of sight.

Nicholas J. Narducci Jr., Senior Deputy Majority Leader
Providence City Council
Councilman – Ward 4
