ATTLEBORO, Mass. (WPRI) – A pair of men suspected of burglarizing a South Attleboro business last weekend may be part of an organized crime ring that’s targeted businesses in three states.

Attleboro police arrested Chepiel Sanchez and Ignacio Duran following a crash Saturday on an I-95 off-ramp.

Police allege Sanchez, Duran and an unidentified third suspect who remains at large broke into a convenience store on Turner Street and made off with $12,000 worth of cigarettes and $1,000 in coins and cash. The pilfered items were found in the trunk of the crashed vehicle, which was later determined to have been stolen, police said.

In addition to the thefts, the store owners said the suspects did a good bit of damage to their business, including cutting the alarm system. Police had already been notified, however, and arrived around 4 a.m. Saturday to find three men exiting the building and getting into the waiting vehicle.

According to a search warrant affidavit obtained by Eyewitness News, Sanchez and Duran are “known to be part of an organized commercial burglary ring that is suspected of at least 24 commercial burglaries in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire.”

Police say the group targets businesses that have ATMs and sell tobacco products. The detectives also noted that the suspects tend to steal their getaway vehicles from locations where there might be a delay in the owner noticing and reporting the theft, such as auto-body shops.

In the affidavit, Attleboro Detective Michael McNeil says a number of factors indicated “this a very organized crew of commercial burglars.”

McNeil also linked Sanchez to March burglaries in Hanover, Harwich and Yarmouth.

Sanchez and Duran were both treated for injuries at Rhode Island Hospital following the crash.

Duran, 41, waived extradition to Massachusetts earlier this week while Sanchez, 40, was arraigned in Attleboro on Thursday.

Police are still working to identify the third suspect. They said he stole a red Ford E-350 van bearing Massachusetts registration 629-DD2 from a South Avenue home and fled north towards Lawrence.
