The 19 year-old son of Yorktown Town Supervisor Michael Grace was arrested on Tuesday night for allegedly stealing a car as well as drug-related charges.

According to the New York State Police at Cortlandt, Henry Grace stole a 2005 Pontiac G6 from the Kohl’s Department Store parking lot, located on Route 6 in Cortlandt Manor. After the owner reported the vehicle stolen to the New York State Police, the Pontiac was spotted by Environmental Conservation Police on State Route 301 Town of Phillipstown.

A vehicle and traffic stop was initiated and Grace was placed under arrest without incident.

Grace was charged by the Environmental Conservation Police with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and driving while ability impaired by drugs. He was issued tickets to appear at the Town of Phillipstown Court on March 14 at 7 p.m.

The supervisor’s son was then turned over to the state police and charged with third-degree grand larceny. Grace was arraigned by the Village of Croton Court and remanded to Westchester County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.

The town supervisor has confirmed that it was his son that had been arrested, but referred to the incident as “a personal matter.”
