Rhode Island Police Recover Loot From String of Burglaries

November 13, 2013

Police in Rhode Island have recovered a long list of items including knives, sunglasses, electronic equipment and more than 50 watches that they believe were stolen during nearly two dozen home break-ins.

WPRI-TV reports Monday that the items were recovered during a joint investigation by the State Police, several municipal departments and the FBI.

Fifty-seven-year-old North Providence resident Michael Rossi has been arrested and charged with the burglaries, as well as two bank robberies. It was unclear Monday if Rossi is being represented by an attorney.

The recovered items include a television, foreign coin collections, sports cards, cellphones, cigar boxes and dozens of pieces of jewelry.

Individuals who believe the items were stolen from their homes are asked to contact the Rhode Island State Police.
