Police: Cape men crash stolen truck, flee on kayaks, steal SUV

DENNIS, MASS. (WHDH) - Two Falmouth men are facing multiple charges after police say they wrecked a stolen pickup truck in Dennis fled from officers on kayaks, then stole an SUV before being apprehended by a state trooper.

Officers responding around 2:30 p.m. Sunday to Porter Lane for a report of a motor vehicle crash found a truck stolen out of Falmouth that had struck a fence and traveled across a gravel driveway into a pair of trees.

As officers searched for the suspects, they received a report that two men had stolen kayaks from a home on Wisteria Lane and were paddling across Kelley’s Pond, according to police. A short time later, a homeowner on Seagull Lane told police that his Honda Pilot had just been stolen.

A trooper patrolling Route 6 westbound stopped the SUV and arrested Devon Pelrine, 21, and Devin Cunningham, 22.

Both men were charged with larceny of a motor vehicle and leaving the scene of property damage, among other offenses.

They were held at the Barnstable County House of Corrections pending an arraignment Wednesday.
