An Ivor woman was sentenced Monday on charges stemming from a crime spree that damaged Sleepy Hole Golf Course and Suffolk Youth Athletic Association facilities, among others.

Stephanie Marie Drames, 33, of the 8200 block of Gale Avenue, Ivor, was the last of the five to be sentenced. She received one year and eight months to serve on a merged count of statutory burglary and grand larceny, as well as destruction of property.

Her sentence is the lightest of the five. Brothers Toby D. Underhill and Aaron M. Underhill, as well as Blane Sebastian Washington Jr., each received two years and six months to serve on their charges. Noah C. Rivera received two years and five months.

The group caused more than $100,000 worth of damage in a multi-night crime spree in October 2014.

At the golf course, the group broke the glass doors on several refrigerators, causing the food to spoil; stopped up the drain on the industrial sink in the kitchen, which flooded the kitchen, dining room and pro shop; helped themselves to food; and destroyed golf carts.

At the Suffolk Youth Athletic Association later that week, they kicked in the doors to the concession stand, slung food and supplies about, and stole food, sports gear and cash, including a significant amount that had been raised for the family of one of its players who was suffering from a medical condition.
