Hudson resident and former alderman Quintin E. Cross surrendered early Mon., Apr. 30, to Hudson police. Cross, 29, was accompanied by his attorney, Susan Tipograph. Cross was the subject of a statewide dragnet in March when he disappeared following questioning by police in connection with a break-in at Hudson City Hall. Two men allegedly entered the building, located at 520 Warren St., through a back entrance sometime between 6 p.m., Fri., Mar. 16 and 6 a.m., Mon., Mar. 19. and stole less than $100 from a petty cash drawer in the Department of Public Works office. Cross was questioned and released, but a felony arrest warrant was subsequently issued March 20. The other man alleged to be involved, Jamont McClendon, 28, was apprehended in a residence on State St. by city police Tues., Apr. 2, following receipt of a tip. McClendon is currently held in Columbia County Jail. As of his surrender, Cross was expected to be processed at HPD and then arraigned in county court sometime later. Editor’s note: Cross was an active WGXC 90.7-FM volunteer as of the date of his disappearance.
