Jose Miguel Alvarado, 25, and his accomplice, Leisa Yarelis Tejeda Pimentel, 24, were arrested Tuesday by NH State Police at the Nashua office of the Department of Motor Vehicles.

Alvarado is being held without bail, pending arraignment Wednesday in 9th Circuit Court-District Division-Nashua.
Pimentel is detained on $5,000 bail. She, too, is to be arraigned Wednesday in Circuit Court.
