HAVERHILL — A Grafton County Superior Court grand jury has indicted a 28-year-old Littleton man on charges that he robbed a store in that town in early December, then burglarized a Littleton home two days later.

Christopher A. Manzella who was living at 3 Main St., Apt. 10, when the crimes took place, is charged with robbing the Circle K/Irving gas station on Cottage Street on Dec. 3 and with breaking into the 200 Sampson Road home of Larry and Anne Carriere on Dec. 5.

In the alleged convenience store robbery, Manzella did “purposely place Cara King and/or Alora Chartier in fear of immediate use of physical force,” by displaying what appeared to be a gun and demanding money, according to the indictment.

At the time of the robbery, Littleton Police Chief Paul Smith said a masked person tried to rob the store, but fled when a cashier refused to hand over any money.

Robbery is a Class A felony; burglary is a Class B felony.

In other indictments the grand jury handed up during its February session in the North Haverhill court:

Sarah E. Day, 31, of 198 Cascadnac Avenue in Hartford, Vt., is charged with two counts of possession of a narcotic/controlled drug between Jan. 1 and Sept. 20, 2013, in Lebanon.

The medication, oxycodone, belonged to two residents at Harvest Hill, a care facility. Day, at the time, was employed there, a Lebanon police spokesman said Wednesday.

Nicholas Bradley, 17, of 6 Winter St. in West Lebanon is charged with reckless conduct with a deadly weapon, a motor vehicle, and disobeying an officer on Sept. 12, 2013, in Lebanon.

Bradley is accused of placing others in danger of serious bodily injury by operating a Dodge truck at excessive speeds in residential neighborhoods, including on Jones Avenue, Powers Street, Whitcomb Avenue, Seminary Hill and Batchelder Avenue.

Bradley is also accused of failing to stop when Lebanon police officer Paul Gifford pursued him in a police vehicle. Reckless conduct is a Class B felony; disobeying a police officer is a Class A misdemeanor.

Dennis Fligg, 42, of 305 North Main St. in Lebanon is charged with two counts of tampering with witnesses and informants on Dec. 12, 2013, in Lebanon.

Fligg, while believing a Vermont case was about to be instituted against him for using a motor vehicle without consent and driving while intoxicated, threatened to murder Adrianne Harris for, according to the indictments, telling authorities Fligg had taken her vehicle without her consent and that he was intoxicated.

Fligg’s actions, according to the indictments, included slamming Harris’ head into a wall, pulling her hair and/or placing his hands around her neck and “restraining her on a bed.”

The charges are Class B felonies.

Peter B. LaBreck Jr., 25, of 220 Wolf Road, No. E-105, in Lebanon is charged with second-degree assault on Dec. 15, 2013, in Lebanon.

LaBreck is accused of assaulting Elizabeth Nye in the face with his hands and/or fist, causing fractures to her jaw. The charge is a Class B felony.
