COEYMANS — A Troy man was arrested and faces charges of grand larceny and fraud related to a boat repair shop he owns in Coeymans Landing.

Milford Perkins, 42, of Troy, was charged Dec. 27 with three counts of third-degree grand larceny and one count of scheme to defraud, according to the Coeymans Police Department.

Perkins owns the Stem to Stern Marine repair shop, Police Chief Marc Tryon said in a statement.

The charges come following a three-month investigation into repairs made at the shop.

“Owners notified the Coeymans Police Department that some repairs were never started after down payments were made and other repairs failed to be completed when Perkins made unauthorized withdrawals from customers’ credit cards,” according to police.

Perkins was arraigned in Coeymans Town Court before Town Justice Rocco Persico and was released pending a future court date.
