Three Providence men arrested in ranging vehicle theft ring



Three larceny suspects are in custody in a joint law enforcement operation involving several communities south of Boston.

Massachusetts State Police Troopers and Hanover Police, Sharon Police, Braintree Police, and North Attleboro Police Officers, are involved in the investigation. The suspects are members of a crew believed responsible for thefts from vehicles in several communities.

Shortly after 7 p.m., Troopers and Officers conducting surveillance at a location in Dedham approached two suspect vehicles. Both vehicles, an Audi and a Chevrolet Suburban, fled the scene. Police did not actively pursue either vehicle but continued to seek them.

Both vehicles crashed separately in Sharon, one on Cottage Street and the other on Beach Street. Suspects fled on foot from both crashes. One male suspect was located nearby by a Sharon Police K-9 unit. The suspect had injuries, and was transported in custody to Good Samaritan Hospital in Brockton.

MSP and local police established a perimeter and began a search for the remaining suspects.
At approximately 8:20 p.m., while searching for the suspects, MSP and Sharon Officers located a Jeep Compass outside Sharon High School. When the Trooper approached, the Jeep fled and got onto Route 95 southbound, with police in pursuit.

The Jeep crashed on Route 95 near Exit 4 in North Attleboro. The suspects in the Jeep fled the crash on foot. Troopers and Officers have captured three suspects.

The three suspects under arrest at State Police-Foxboro in connection with this incident are as follows:

KEMONI L. MITCHELL, 21, of Providence, R.I.
JOSHUA D. TANGUI, 26, of Providence, R.I.
