Connecticut Man Indicted for Robbery of North Greenbush Store

Also Charged With Interstate Transport of a Stolen Car

ALBANY, NEW YORK – David Daniel Hunter, age 53, of Enfield, Connecticut, was arraigned today on charges of robbery and transporting a stolen motor vehicle in interstate commerce.

The announcement was made by Acting United States Attorney Grant C. Jaquith and Vadim D. Thomas, Special Agent in Charge of the Albany Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

According to the indictment and previously filed complaint, Hunter robbed a Dollar Tree store in the Town of North Greenbush, New York, on May 6, 2017. Hunter brandished what appeared to be a handgun, demanded money, and received about $1,200 from the store’s register and safe, according to the complaint. Also on May 6, Hunter transported a 2017 Dodge Charger that he knew had been stolen, according to the indictment.

The charges are merely accusations. The defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

Hunter was arraigned today before United States Magistrate Judge Christian F. Hummel, who ordered him detained pending trial.

If convicted on all charges, Hunter would face up to 20 years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000, and a term of post-imprisonment supervised release of up to 3 years. A defendant’s sentence is imposed by a judge based on the particular statutes the defendant is charged with violating, the United States Sentencing Guidelines, and other factors.

This case is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the North Greenbush Police Department, and the Enfield (Connecticut) Police Department, and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Sean O’Dowd.
