Bob Gardinier is reporting in the Times Union former Hudson Alderman Quintin E. Cross and Jamont M. McClendon are being sought in connection with burglarizing City Hall last weekend. Cross, 29, and McClendon, 28, were allegedly caught on tape by security cameras. The break in at 520 Warren occurred sometime between 6 p.m., Fri., Mar. 16, and 6 a.m., Mon., Mar. 19. According to Gardinier, Mayor Bill Hallenbeck said the men "tried to pry their way into some offices and gained access to the Department of Public Works where they took at most $100 from a petty cash drawer." Hudson Police Department and the Columbia County district attorney's office are collaborating on the investigation. Read the full story in the Times Union. Audra Jornov reported in the Register Star a felony arrest warrant was issued late Tues. Mar. 20, for both suspects. Cross was questioned during "the preliminary investigation," but was permitted to leave because he was not under arrest, at the time, according to Hudson Police Commissioner Gary Graziano. The police have not been able to relocate him since, Jornov writes. Read the full story in the Register Star. Editor's note: Cross is an active WGXC 90.7-FM volunteer.
