Yorktown Supervisor Michael Grace's son faces criminal charges for allegedly stealing a vehicle from the Kohl's Department Store parking lot located on Route 6 in Cortlandt and driving it while his ability was impaired by drugs.
The vehicle's owner reported it stolen to the New York State Police Tuesday evening. The Environmental Conservation Police spotted the car on State Route 301 in the town of Phillipstown and 19-year-old Henry Grace was stopped and arrested in connection to the incident.
He was charged by the Environmental Conservation Police with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and driving while ability impaired by drugs. New York State Police charged him with third-degree grand larceny, a felony.
"Unfortunately, he is one of my kids who has had a long-standing number of issues that we've been trying to address," Yorktown supervisor Michael Grace said on Wednesday as he confirmed his son's arrest.
The defendant was issued appearance tickets returnable to town of Phillipstown Court on March 14 at 7 p.m.
Grace was arraigned by the Village of Croton Court and remanded to Westchester County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.
