DeKALB – A 34-year-old DeKalb man is serving four years in prison for having a stolen vehicle in February 2013.

Daniel Taylor, of the 800 block of Kimberly Drive, pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of a stolen vehicle Thursday in exchange for prosecutors dropping charges of burglary, possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia and domestic battery, court records show. They also dropped two other charges of possession of a stolen vehicle.

He will receive credit for the 464 days – about a year and three months – he spent in jail while the case was pending. DeKalb County Presiding Judge Robbin Stuckert suggested he receive alcohol treatment in prison. He’ll have to serve two years of parole when he finishes his prison term.

Taylor and Timothy Schabow, 48, also of the 800 block of Kimberly Drive, had a stolen truck and two stolen cars Feb. 21, 2013, authorities said. They also burglarized other cars around the Heatherstone subdivision near DeKalb High School, authorities said.

Schabow pleaded guilty to burglary in April 2013 and was sentenced to 100 days in the DeKalb County Jail and to two years of probation, court records show.
