Clarkstown cops charge 3 in separate store thefts
Three people are facing charges in a series of unrelated thefts from stores in Clarkstown over the weekend, police said Monday.
In the first incident, police went to Macy's at the Palisades Center in West Nyack on Friday night to respond to a report of an employee stealing money from the cash register. They arrested Folaskye Pierre-Louis, 25, of Spring Valley, after store security saw him take a $20 bill from a register and place it in his pocket, police said. Police believe Pierre-Louis is responsible for stealing $1,980 from the store in the past two months.
He was charged with felony fourth-degree grand larceny and fifth-degree misdemeanor possession of stolen property. Pierre-Louis was issued an appearance ticket to be arraigned in Clarkstown Town Court on Oct. 10.
On Saturday, police arrested Vanessa Fiallos, 33, of the Bronx, after being called to Lord & Taylor at the Palisades Center on a report of a shoplifter. Store security saw Fiallos take sunglasses, jeans, shirts, a jacket and a handbag worth a total of $2,083 and place them in other bags she was carrying, police said.
Fiallos was charged with fourth-degree grand larceny and fourth-degree possession of stolen property, both felonies, and misdemeanor possession of burglar tools. She was given an appearance ticket to be arraigned in Clarkstown Town Court on Oct. 15.
On Sunday, police arrested Kelly Marks, 41, of Pearl River, after getting a report of a shoplifter at Kohl's department store in Nanuet. Store security saw Marks fill a shopping cart with $1,547 in merchandise and leave without paying, police said.
She was charged with fourth-degree grand larceny and fourth-degree possession of stolen property, both felonies. Marks was arraigned Sunday in Clarkstown Town Court before Justice Scott Ugell and sent to Rockland County Jail in lieu of $1,500 bail. She is scheduled to return to court Wednesday.
No attorney information was available Monday for any of the three and efforts to reach them were unsuccessful.
