NORTH PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A police chase that began in Scituate ended in North Providence with the help of a clever canine.

Scituate police say a woman reported seeing several people trying to break into a home Monday morning. Officers spotted the car on Route 12 and gave chase.

Police say a girl under 18 was driving with at least four men inside. The occupants got out in North Providence and tried to flee. Two people tried to hide underneath a nearby porch, but 2-year-old Remy noticed the suspects and began barking. The owner, who is a former Providence police officer, says he pretended he had a weapon and ordered them out.

All of the vehicle’s occupants were arrested. They are investigating what, if anything, was stolen.


This story has been corrected to show that the chase started in Scituate, Rhode island, not Scituate, Massachusetts.
