Man who held hostages at Clinton campaign office to serve time for robbery, drug possession

CONCORD — The man who held hostages at a New Hampshire campaign office for Hillary Clinton in 2007 is expected to serve a 5-year sentence for robbery and drug charges.

Leeland Eisenberg was scheduled to appear in Federal Court Wednesday, but the hearing has been postponed until the week of Feb. 20th.

According to a plea agreement, Eisenberg will plead guilty to robbing the Citizen's Bank on Elm Street in Manchester on Aug. 2, 2016. Eisenberg allegedly handed the teller a note which read "No alarms. No dye packs. I have a gun and I will shoot you and others if you put a dye pack in. Fill the bag with cash now."

Eisenberg made off with approximately $1,160. He was arrested that evening and officers located $118.52 and ten bags of cocaine.

Pending the official plea agreement, Eisenberg will serve 5 years in prison.

Eisenberg held hostages at a Hillary Clinton campaign office in Rochester in 2007, claiming to be wearing a bomb. The vest turned out to be roadside flares and no one was injured. He has been outspoken about his frustrations with the mental health system.
