PRINEVILLE, OR -- Two thieves will serve significant jail time in two separate Crook County. The area saw an uptick in property crimes, last fall


Alysa Bennight, of Prineville, was sentenced this month to four years in prison. She pleaded guilty to various burglary, theft and drug charges related to a string of Prineville-area home burglaries. Bennight was arrested during a traffic stop in November. 
Martin Hollowell was ordered to serve 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to numerous counts of theft, criminal mischief and ID theft. The Bend man was indicted on 23 property-related crimes and car break-ins. The Crook County District Attorney says Hollowell's extensive criminal record allowed prosecutors to ask for a longer sentence under Measure 57. 
While Bennight and Hollowell's crimes occurred during roughly the same time, investigators don't believe they knew each other.
