Barrington Police Charge E.P. Teen With Car Break-Ins

Officials issue warrant for second teenager's arrest

— Barrington police charged Christopher S. Storti, 19, of 153 Worcester Ave., East Providence, with five counts of larceny under $500 for his alleged role in a string of thefts from motor vehicles.

On Tuesday, Jan. 10 at about 4:30 p.m., Mr. Storti turned himself in at the Barrington Police Department for the larcenies that took place in late December. Police officials also issued a warrant for the arrest of a 17-year-old Barrington boy who allegedly assisted Mr. Storti with the crimes.

On Dec. 28, an East Providence police officer reportedly saw a vehicle driven by Mr. Storti — the Barrington teen was a passenger — fail to stop at a stop sign; the officer ordered it over to the side of the road, and upon approaching the driver's side window reportedly smelled the odor of burnt marijuana.

A subsequent search of Mr. Storti's car and later a search of Mr. Storti's home turned up nearly a dozen GPS units and other electronic devices linking the pair to larcenies in East Providence, Barrington and Seekonk.

East Providence police then arrested Mr. Storti and the 17-year-old Barrington boy.

On the same day as the arrest, Barrington police received 11 complaints for larcenies from vehicles. The incidents were believed to have occurred earlier that day or late Tuesday night, Dec. 27. A number of GPS units, a wallet, a purse and loose change was stolen from unlocked cars in the northern part of town, near the East Providence line. Barrington Police Chief John LaCross said the items recovered from Mr. Storti's car and home were later traced back to the Barrington thefts.
