Suspects from Cranston, East Providence and North Providence are in custody following a Wednesday morning break-in and vehicle rollover, according to Cranston police.
Officers responded to the area of 123 Priscilla Drive shortly after 7 a.m. following the report of the break-in. Police said the three suspects attempted to flee the area after the owners of the residence returned home.
The vehicle carrying the suspects then overturned at the intersection of Priscilla Drive and Olney Arnold Road, police said, and all three ran from the vehicle.

Kevin Lenk, 46, of 612 Wilbur Ave. in Cranston, was found by Cranston police and members of the Rhode Island State Police K-9 Unit hiding in woods in the area of 1241 Phenix Ave. Police said K-9 Chuck “made the apprehension by administering a bite to Lenk’s stomach area.”
All three suspects were transported to Rhode Island Hospital with minor injuries, police said.
