Probation violation nets prison time for city man

September 11, 1998

Missed appointments, unauthorized changes of address and evidence of drug use combined on Thursday to send Dustin Prendable to prison for four years.

During an appearance before Washington County Circuit Judge John H. McDowell, Prendable, 21, of the first block of West Baltimore Street, admitted violating the terms of his probation.

That probation was imposed on Nov. 14, 1996, when Prendable was found guilty of third-degree burglary and sentenced to 10 years in prison, with all but 18 months suspended, court records said.

That plea came from a June 17, 1996, crime in which guns were stolen, court records said. At that time, Prendable was on probation for his role in an earlier bomb threat incident at South Hagerstown High School, court records said.

Washington County Assistant State's Attorney Susan Lochbaum said Prendable missed appointments and moved out of the county during his two-year probation for the burglary, both serious violations.

Lochbaum said when Prendable returned to the area, he failed two drug-related urine tests.
