Convict fails drug tests probation is revoked

January 07, 1994

Christopher Lamont Magruder, nearly half through a two-year probation for a cocaine conviction, was sent to the county jail for a year because he failed two drug tests last summer and fall.

Carroll Circuit Judge Raymond E. Beck Sr. yesterday ordered Mr. Magruder to serve the previously suspended jail sentence he gave him on Jan. 13, 1993, for a cocaine possession conviction.

According to court records, Mr. Magruder, 23, of the 400 block of Baldwin Park Drive, Westminster, tested positive for cocaine use in tests issued on Aug. 9 and Sept. 27.

Mr. Magruder was arrested in August 1992 by the Carroll County Narcotics Task Force after a car in which he was a passenger was stopped.

Cocaine was found in the car, records say.

Judge Beck convicted Mr. Magruder and gave him a suspended one-year sentence and ordered him to serve two years of probation.
