Press Release – Robbery Arrest

The Hudson Police Department has made an arrest in two related cases that occurred this week.

On Thursday August 24, at 12:46pm, HPD received a complaint from the “Antigo” vintage goods retail store at 337 Warren Street that a white male reached over the counter and made off with $505 dollars from the cash register. The subject ran off, but some leads were quickly developed.

On Sunday August 27, at 8:52pm, HPD received a call that Lucky’s convenience store at 718 Columbia St had just been robbed. An investigation revealed that a subject matching the same description diverted the attention of the clerk and took over $5,000 dollars from a cash box in the store. The clerk , a 52 yr old Stockport resident, attempted to stop the thief as he exited the store, but was shoved into a display rack and onto the ground. The clerk was not significantly injured. A Columbia County Sheriff’s K-9 assisted at the scene.

At 12:49pm, acting on a tip from the New York State Police, HPD uniform officers stopped a taxi at the intersection of Cedar Parkway and Joslen Boulevard.

Arrested was SEAN MCLAUGHLIN, age 51, of County Route 145, Preston Hollow, NY. McLaughlin is a convicted felon , with arrests that include a bank robbery in Connecticut.

He is being processed at the HPD Station awaiting arraignment.

“The ability to close this case so quickly is remarkable, given the amount of time we have to allocate to the murder investigation.” Chief
