Greece Teen Found Safe After Amber Alert Now Charged With Grand Larceny

- A teenage girl whose disappearance sparked an Amber Alert has been charged with grand larceny.  Cassidy Geffert, 16, was found safely about an hour after the Alert was issued, and several hours after police were called to her house on Talnuck Drive.  Greece Police Chief Patrick Phelan says based on the condition of the home, they issued the Alert, but he acknowledges some parts of the alert contained information later proved to be false.  The original bulletin said Geffert's disappearance was a confirmed abduction.   Based on a tip to 911, police found the car named in the Amber Alert in a parking lot in the town of Brockport.  Geffert was taken into custody at that time.
On Monday evening, Geffert was arraigned on a charge of felony grand larceny, for the alleged theft of a gun from her home.  She pleaded not guilty. She is represented by her mother, Marilyn Palumbo, who is an attorney.  Geffert was released into her mother's custody on the following conditions:  She must wear an electronic monitoring device, all weapons must be removed from her home, she must follow an 8pm curfew, and undergo a mental health evaluation.   Geffert will be back in Greece Town Court Thursday, June 26th.
