Police charge two teenagers with breaking and entering

Posted

Two teenagers are facing charges after they allegedly broke into a Barrington home and partied there while the residents were away on vacation. 

Barrington Police charged Devin M. Oliveira, 19, of Riverside, and Elias Z. Pessoa Cabral, 18, of Warren, with unlawful breaking and entering of dwelling house-first offense.

Police received a call from a Barrington resident who was taking care of a neighbor’s cats while they were away on vacation. The caller said that when she went to the house that morning, she could smell a strong odor of marijuana and found empty wine cooler bottles and clothes scattered about. The caller told police it appeared someone had been in the house the previous night.

Police responded to the scene and saw a teenager, later identified as Oliveira, riding his bike near the home. Police spoke to the teen, who said he had messed.

Police said Oliveira initially said he had permission to be in the house, but later admitted that was not the case. Oliveira said he was friends with the homeowner’s son and knew they were away on vacation.

Police later checked the home and found Cabral inside the house on the second floor. Police said the teenagers forced their way into the home.

Police said that another individual, a teenager from Providence, had also been inside the home.
