EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Police are investigating the possibility that two men arrested after a chase in East Providence could be tied to several break-ins around Rhode Island and Connecticut.

WPRI-TV (http://bit.ly/2anNrIj ) reports that the suspects, who were not immediately identified, are accused of breaking into a home Wednesday afternoon. Lt. Tom Rush says the homeowner alerted police after seeing the suspects on a home surveillance camera linked to a mobile app.

Police say the chase was broken off when the suspects’ vehicle went into Providence, but officers spotted the vehicle when it returned to East Providence and finally were able to capture the men. A stun gun was used on one of the suspects.

Police said the vehicle had a stolen Massachusetts license plate covering up a Connecticut plate.
