Original press release from last fall:
QUINTIN E. CROSS, 33 yrs old, of Hudson was arrested today on charges of Grand Larceny 4th (E felony)
At about 1:06pm Hudson Police Detectives located CROSS sitting in his vehicle on North 5th Street. He was arrested without incident.
The charges stem from a Hudson citizen’s complaint when she discovered large sums of money missing from one of her checking accounts. She showed documentation of over $3000 dollars removed from her account via a debit card. Hudson Police were joined by Investigators from the New York State Police, as various transactions occurred outside the city. The number of transactions and total amount of money stolen is still under investigation and other charges are pending. Columbia County District Attorney Paul Czajka assisted in this case.
QUINTIN E. CROSS is listed today on the Staley B. Keith Social Justice Center website as their “Executive Director”. Former Executive Director Cederic Fulton was arrested on February 3, 2016 for stabbing another individual with a knife after an argument spilled onto State Street.
CROSS was arraigned in front of City Court Judge John Connors and remanded to the Columbia County Jail in lieu of $3,500 dollars bail.
“This is a pretty straight forward case. We are preparing for trial. Our victim claims under no circumstances did this individual have any permission, expressed or implied, to use her ATM card.” Chief Moore
