Three men arrested in New Hampshire are accused of taking printer-toner cartridges from Staples office-supply stores in several states, including Connecticut.
Tilton Police Chief Bob Cormier said the men had targeted Staples stores in New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts.
They were arrested last week in New Hampshire where they allegedly stole cartridges from stores in Nashua, Bedford and Manchester, before being spotted at the store in Concord.
Cormier said the value of the items in the New Jersey thefts alone was in excess of $100,000.
The three men are from Brooklyn, New York and were expected to be arraigned Monday.
They are Ronnell Samuals, 27, Daquain Dollar, 24, and Kashif Trumaine, 20.
