    BENNINGTON — An Arlington man is being held in jail after being accused of taking two cartons of cigarettes from a Manchester store March 27 and some miscellaneous items from an Arlington doctor’s office March 9.

    Benjamin S. Payne, 32, was arraigned in Bennington criminal court this week on a felony charge of burglary and two misdemeanor charges of petty larceny.

    Payne pleaded innocent Monday but at a hearing Tuesday, defense attorney Lucy McCarthy said her client would not object to being held in prison because the Department of Corrections revoked his furlough.

    Police said Payne took some tourniquets and needles from Arlington Family Practice on March 9. The combined value of the items was about $1.50, police said Payne was also accused of taking two cartons of cigarettes and going through an employee’s handbag at Maplefield’s store in Manchester on March 27. He was charged with burglary because police said he entered an area of the store not open to the public.

    Police said the incident at Maplefield’s was recorded by the store’s video surveillance system.
