Police probe possible break-in at congressman’s home

March 4, 2020 GMT

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Police in Rhode Island are investigating a possible break-in at a congressman’s home.

Police responded to a call of a break-in at U.S. Rep. David Cicilline’s house in Providence on Wednesday morning, Maj. David Lapatin said, although it is unclear when the break-in occurred.

There was no immediate word on whether anything was stolen, he said.

Cicilline was not at home.

The Democrat was in Washington on Tuesday and Wednesday because the House was in session, his spokesman said in an emailed statement.

Providence police were called Wednesday to investigate a possible break-in at the congressman’s home, Cicilline spokesman Rich Luchette said in a statement.


“In light of the ongoing investigation, I would direct any additional questions to the police department.”


This story has been corrected to reflect that police were notified of the possible break-in Wednesday, not Tuesday.
