Police: 2 men charged in connection with Swansea robbery
BARRINGTON, R.I. —
Barrington police are hoping a pair of arrests will help solve reported break-ins in the area.
William Lajoie and Peter Costa, both of Fall River, were charged with receiving stolen goods and being a fugitive from justice.
On Monday, Barrington police said they received a tip from Warren police that a suspicious van with Massachusetts license plates was in the town.
An officer stopped the van and found several items that were believed to be stolen from a Swansea home that day.
Barrington police said both men have lengthy criminal records.
