Livingston County Sheriff Thomas J. Dougherty reports the arrest of three Michigan residents of felony charges after a traffic stop on Lakeville Road in Geneseo on March 4th.
During the traffic stop, it was learned that the vehicle and occupants were the subject of a Grand Larceny investigation from a department store in Victor that had been initiated earlier in the day by the State Police in Canandaigua. Through the investigation, it was found that the three subjects were still in possession of nearly $5,000 of stolen property from the department store.
The driver of the vehicle, was identified as a 15 year old juvenile from Flint Michigan who was charged as a juvenile delinquent with felony Criminal Possession of Stolen Property in the 3rd Degree and False Personation as the juvenile provided the investigating Deputies with a false name. The juvenile was arraigned in Livingston County Family Court on the charges. The name is being withheld due to the age of the juvenile. A passenger in the vehicle was identified as 18-year-old Sharielle Ariana-Donita Patton from Mount Morris Michigan. Patton was arrested and charged with felony Criminal Possession of Stolen Property in the 3rd Degree and Endangering the Welfare of a Child. Patton was turned over to Central Booking Deputies at the Livingston County Jail for processing and prearraignment detention. Under the NYS Justice Reform Act, the offense qualified for prearraignment detention, however the offense did not qualify for the Judge to hold on on bail. Patton was later arraigned at the Livingston County Centralized Arraignment Part (LC-CAP) at the Livingston County Jail before Town of York Justice Daniel Koch.
The Judge did release Patton on her own recognizance to return to court at a later date to answer the charges per the law.
