The son of Yorktown Supervisor Michael Grace was arrested Tuesday night for stealing money while attending a party.
Henry Grace, 22, of Hanover Street in Yorktown, was charged by Yorktown Police with grand larceny in the fourth degree, a Class E felony, for allegedly stealing $3,000 from a security box at a home at 2281 Crompond Road on July 12.
Police said Grace voluntarily appeared at Yorktown Police headquarters on July 14 at 8:28 p.m. where he was charged. He was released on his own recognizance and is scheduled to appear in Yorktown Town Court on August 18.
Michael Grace, who has publicly acknowledged in the past problems his son has faced, said Wednesday it’s a difficult situation for parents to deal with.
“It’s painful for everyone,” Grace said. “Hopefully we can stay prayful and hopeful.”
In February 2012, Henry Grace was arrested by State Police for stealing a car from the Kohl’s parking lot in Cortlandt. In addition to grand larceny, he was charged at the time with criminal possession of a controlled substance and driving while ability impaired by drugs.
Three months later, while on probation for the February incident, Grace was charged with stealing a car in Yorktown after leading police on a chase through Cortlandt and Yorktown before crashing the vehicle in Shrub Oak.
