Devon Sherman, 21, was sentenced to 2 to 6 years in jail.

A Mount Vernon man has been sentenced to 2 to 6 years in jail for an almost yr-lengthy crime spree that included stealing a motorcycle and a automotive, throwing a surveillance system in a river and utilizing counterfeit cash, officers stated.

Westchester County Courtroom Decide Barbara Zambelli sentenced Devon Sherman on Tuesday, the Westchester County District Lawyer’s Workplace stated in a press launch.

Sherman, 21, beforehand admitted to a number of crimes all through the world in 2015 and 2016.

Officials said the crime spree began on July 30, 2015, when state police said Sherman and Peekskill resident Alexander Henderson broke the window of the Down Bicycles shop in Croton-on-Hudson and stole bicycles, computer equipment and money.

Sherman and Henderson also smashed the surveillance camera outside the store and took the surveillance system from inside the shop and threw it into a nearby river, officials said, adding that the pair stole or damaged thousands of dollars worth of property from the business.

Sherman then tried to sell one of the stolen items, “a one-of-a-kind bicycle,” on Craiglist, the DA’s office said. State police arrested Sherman and Henderson in August 2015 in that case.

Henderson pleaded guilty to third-degree burglary, a felony, in that case and was sentenced in October to one to three years in prison, court records show.

While the Croton case was pending, Sherman passed a counterfeit bill on Feb. 9, 2016, at a Greenburgh gas station, officials said. Hours later, Sherman and another person tried to use another counterfeit bill at an Eastchester gas station, officials said.

A worker at the Eastchester gas station recognized the bill was fake and called police, who arrested the pair minutes later, officials said.

On March 7, 2016, Sherman and two others stole a car from a Peekskill condominium, officials said, and Sherman had it moved to Mount Vernon, where it was stripped for parts. The DA’s office ended up arresting Sherman in that case.

Sherman pleaded guilty on Sept. 27 to two felony counts of first-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, a felony count of third-degree burglary, a felony count of third-degree grand larceny and a misdemeanor count of third-degree unauthorized use of a vehicle.

Celia Curtis prosecuted the cases.
