Man nabbed for stealing 12-pack


MERRIMACK – A Manchester man was arrested Friday on a warrant for theft by unauthorized taking.

The warrant was from an incident in June, in which Leland Peterson, 31, 381 Thornton St., Manchester, allegedly took a 12-pack of beer from a Merrimack store without paying for it.

Peterson was released on $1,000 personal recognizance bail and is scheduled for arraignment Aug. 16 at the Ninth Circuit Court in Merrimack.
