    One of the four suspects charged with stealing 13 puppies from a Manchester, New Hampshire, pet store on Tuesday has also been linked to two recent armed taxi driver robberies, according to police.

    Curtis Massey, 17, of Manchester, was one of four teens charged in connection with Tuesday's burglary at Bill's Pet and Aquarium. He was charged with one count of burglary, one count of resisting arrest/detention and one count of violation of bail conditions.

    Manchester Police say Massey is also now being charged with two counts of armed robbery in connection with cab driver robberies that occurred on Dec. 10 and Dec. 13. Both robberies involved a handgun, and police said Massey fled with cash during both robberies.

    Massey and two of the other puppy theft suspects - Victor Morina and Ian Forsberg - are scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday in Manchester District Court. The fourth suspect, Samara Massey, will not be in court.

    Police recovered the stolen dogs, worth about $5,000, unharmed at one of the suspects' grandmother's house on Lake Avenue shortly after Tuesday's theft.
