Stony Point Police announced the arrest of three suspects Friday in connection to a break-in and vehicle theft that was reported in Tomkins Cove.

The incident occurred on June 5 at around 11 a.m. when the perpetrators gained access to a garage in the private community of Tomkins Lake Colony. The intruders stole a Honda ATV and a Yamaha motorcycle from the property.

The next day, investigators identified and arrested Christopher Perez, 21 of West Haverstraw, Joel Crespo, 21 of Stony Point and Rosemarie Palmer, 17 of Stony Point for the theft. All three were charged with third degree burglary, fourth degree grand larceny and fourth degree criminal possession of stolen property, all felonies.

The three were sent to Rockland County Jail on $5,000 bail. They are expected back in court on June 10.

It was an especially 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.

The charges indicate the total value of the theft was between one and three thousands dollars.
