Paul Clement, a 30-year-old transient known to roam the North Rockland area, has been charged with burglary in the second degree, two counts of grand larceny in the fourth degree, one count of grand larceny in the third degree and criminal possession of stolen property in the third degree for allegedly breaking into his parent’s home and stealing personal items from them, as well as a neighbor’s 2014 Honda automobile and other belongings.

Clement’s parents complained to Stony Point PD that their son had stolen a wallet containing credit cards from their home. The defendant fled the scene and is accused of shortly thereafter breaking into another Stony Point home, while the homeowners were upstairs sleeping, and stealing their wallet, cell phone, car keys and the 2014 Honda. The defendant and vehicle was located later that day in Nyack, New York.

The defendant was arrested, processed and arraigned by the Honorable Judge John Grant of the Haverstraw Justice Court, who remanded the defendant to the Rockland County Correctional Facility on $25,000 bail.

The Stony Point Police were assisted by the RC Intelligence Center, the Orangetown Police Dept. and the RC Sheriff’s BCI Unit.
