Man who robbed Hudson bank, took hostages faces fines and prison time

CONCORD — The man who robbed the St. Mary's Bank branch on Winnhaven Drive in Hudson and took an employee hostage is now facing time in federal prison after pleading guilty Tuesday in court.

Daniel Quinn, 48 of Nashua, pleaded guilty to armed robbery for the June 2015 robbery. He waved a knife and had what appeared to be a handgun tucked into his waistband, according to a statement released by U.S. Attorney Emily Gray Rice, according to The Telegraph.

Quinn wore a black hat, a mask and gloves, and carried a knife in his left hand while keeping a brown leather satchel over his left shoulder when he entered the bank and forced all of the patrons and the majority of staff to line up against a wall, Rice said.

Hudson police arrived at the bank within minutes of the robbery and tracked Quinn's scent using a police dog. Quinn was found hiding in the side yard of a home.

Quinn was arrested without incident and police found the satchel nearby, which appeared to be covered with leaves. Inside, officials found the money from robbery, along with all the items he was wearing in order mask his identity. Officers also found a BB gun in the bag, which is the gun witnesses reported seeing.

Quinn faces a maximum prison sentence of up to 25 years and a fine of up to $250,000. He will be sentenced at 10 a.m. Jan. 6 in the federal court. He has been in custody since his arrest on the day of the robbery and will remain in custody until his sentencing hearing.
