CONCORD, N.H. — A New Hampshire man has been sentenced to more than five years in federal prison for an armed bank robbery.
Documents say 48-year-old Daniel Quinn, of Nashua, entered St. Mary’s Bank in Hudson in June 2015. He had a brown leather satchel over his shoulder in which it appeared he had a handgun. Authorities say he forced bank patrons and employees to line up against a wall while he robbed a teller using a knife. After that, he took a bank employee hostage as he escaped.
Police said the hostage got away from Quinn and ran back into the bank, while Quinn ran away. Police later found him hiding in the yard of a home.
Quinn pleaded guilty in September.
Federal Judge Landya McCafferty told Quinn that his conduct was an act of terror.
