Homeless man charged in Crosstown Variety robberies


Nicholas Meuse 

MANCHESTER — Nicholas Meuse was arraigned Friday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division on two robbery charges, accused of robbing two Crosstown Variety stores this week.

Police said a man about to enter the Crosstown Variety Store at 77 Bremer St. Thursday night noticed a man inside yelling at the clerk and, suspecting the man might be robbing the store, flagged down Officer Justin Mangum.

Police said Mangum looked through the window and saw Meuse, 27, pulling cash out of the register drawer. Mangum confronted Meuse as he left the store and Meuse, who is homeless, was taken into custody without incident.

The clerk told police that Meuse initially asked for cigarettes, but instead of paying for them, demanded money. When the clerk did not immediately hand over cash, Meuse allegedly implied he would hurt the clerk if he did not get the money.

He ultimately left with cigarettes and cash, only to be confronted by Mangum directly in front of the store.

Meuse was also charged with the Monday robbery of the Crosstown Variety Store at 270 Amory St. In that robbery, the clerk said a man entered the store and asked for cigarettes. He then demanded money, telling the clerk he did not want to hurt her. He had his hands in his pockets and did not display a weapon. The robber left the store with the cigarettes and some cash, but there was no officer waiting outside Monday.

Meuse could enter no plea to the felony robbery charges in Circuit Court, so a probable cause hearing was set for Nov. 26. Bail was set at $20,000 cash/surety.
