Police arrested Meredith Cunniff, 37, at her father’s house Friday.
Cunniff is charged in a $6,000 unarmed bank robbery in July at Colonial Federal Savings Bank. Police say she is also a suspect for two other bank robberies in Marshfield and South Boston that month.
The Patriot Ledger reports her father, Edward Cunniff, confirmed with police that the woman in the surveillance photos from both bank robberies was his daughter.
Documents in the Quincy District Courts indicate the family believes she has serious substance-abuse issues. The father even tried to send his daughter to rehab but Judge James Sullivan “did not find enough to admit Meredith,” according to the Patriot Ledger, which cites a Quincy police report.
The father paid $1,500 bail to release his daughter the same day.
Even though the parent paid the bail, we pose the question: Would you turn in your own child to the police?
