GRAND LARCENY - POTSDAM - Village police charged Stacey S. Riley, 37, of Wilmington, N.C., also listing a 933 Mayfield Drive, Potsdam, address, with fourth-degree grand larceny and three counts of petit larceny at 2:03 a.m. Saturday on Mayfield Drive.

Police alleged Riley stole a debit card and a cell phone. Police said Riley then used the stolen debit card on two different occasions at an ATM in the village of Potsdam.

She was arraigned by Potsdam Village Justice Nicholas Pignone and sent to the St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility with bail set at $2,500 cash or $5,000 bond.

Raymond J. Perry, 65, told police he was at his apartment with Riley, who he described in court papers as his girlfriend, Friday night when he went to bed at approximately 7:30 p.m. He said he woke up at approximately 11:15 p.m. and discovered Riley was no longer at the apartment. He said he assumed she had gone next door to visit a friend. He said he watched some television and then discovered his cell phone was missing from his jacket pocket. He said he checked next door to see if Riley was visiting her friend but no one answered the door.

“... I went back to apartment and got back in bed, and I thought to myself that I better check my wallet,” he told police, noting he found his wallet was still in his pants pocket, but his debit card was missing.

“It was obvious to me that Stacey had stolen my cell phone and my debit card and had most likely gone to the bar with it. The cell phone solely belongs to me and the debit card solely belongs to me and none of the money in the account for the card belongs to Stacey. Stacey does not even have a job where she could earn money to put in the account,” Perry added in his statement, acknowledging it had been an ongoing problem.

Police alleged Riley used the debit card to withdraw $20 plus a $2 terminal fee from Perry’s account from an ATM Machine at The Lounge at 9:21 p.m. Friday and an additional $20 and a $2 terminal fee from the same account at the same location at 12:16 a.m. Saturday.

The court also signed a temporary order of protection directing Riley to stay away from Perry, a request made by Perry.
