On Monday, October 9, 2022, at around 4:15 p.m., a 57-year-old Hudson resident called the Hudson Police Department to report that a man had stolen his money while he was at a convenience store located at 2nd and Warren Street. The suspect grabbed a $160.00 in cash from the victim’s hand and refused to give it back. The suspect then left the store with the money. HPD patrols and detectives reviewed the store video and recognized the suspect from previous contacts. A short time later Det. Sgt. Jason Finn spotted and confronted McNeil at the Hudson Amtrak station. He resisted arrest and ran up Allen Street. Det. Sgt. Finn was able to apprehend the suspect after a brief struggle. No one, including the victim, was injured during the incident. It is believed that the suspect was planning to leave the area.
McNeil was arraigned by Judge Connor at the Hudson City Court. He was remanded to the Columbia County Jail with no bail based on the fact McNeil had two previous violent felony convictions for Robbery 1st (2013) and Criminal Possession of a Weapon 2nd degree, a loaded firearm (2008). McNeil will return to court on November 10, 2022, at 9:00am. McNeil is currently on New York State Parole.
“I commend Det. Sgt. Finn, a 22-year veteran of HPD, for his alertness and dedication to duty. He was able to locate and safely apprehend a dangerous suspect. Quick action kept other Hudson citizens from being victimized.” Chief
