The Rockland County Times has confirmed from reliable sources that three youths were arrested Friday night in Stony Point for burglary and theft after they allegedly broke into the garage of somebody they knew and stole an ATV and a Honda motorcycle on Thursday.
Two of the youths arrested were Joel Crespo, 21, and his girlfriend Rosemarie Palmer, 17, both of Stony Point, the newspaper has confirmed, and the alleged theft took place in the Tomkins Cove Colonies.
It was a rough week for Palmer as Wednesday and Thursday regional media was abuzz with reports that her grandfather Eugene Palmer–the notorious fugitive who stands accused of murdering Rosemarie’s mother Tammy Palmer [his daughter-in-law]–was seen in a chemical plant near Woodbury. Those reports did not lead anywhere.
Sources blamed Rosemarie’s newfound troubles with the law on her boyfriend Joel, who has been arrested on more than one occasion.
A $2,500 reward was recently announced by New York State Crime Stoppers for information leading to Eugene’s Palmer’s arrest and conviction.
The third person arrested was Christopher Perez, 21 of West Haverstraw. All three were charged with third degree burglary, fourth degree grand larceny and fourth degree criminal possession of stolen property, all felonies.
Fourth degree grand larceny generally indicates theft of property with a total value of between $1,000 – $3,000.
