2007 Clinton Office Hostage Taker Accused of Robbing Bank

By The Associated Press
MANCHESTER, N.H. Aug 3, 2016, 11:11 AM ET

A man convicted years ago of taking hostages at a Hillary Clinton presidential campaign office in 2007 has been arrested in a New Hampshire bank robbery.

Police say 55-year-old parolee Leeland Eisenberg, of Concord, New Hampshire, was arrested Tuesday in Manchester. He was charged with robbery and being in possession of a controlled drug.

It wasn't immediately known if he has a lawyer. He was arraigned Wednesday.

Eisenberg spent at least two years behind bars for the November 2007 siege at Clinton's Rochester, New York, campaign office in her first run for president. No one was hurt in the five-hour standoff. Eisenberg claimed to have a bomb, but it turned out to be road flares.

Police say video surveillance of the Manchester bank robbery helped lead them to Eisenberg.
