Sheriff Leon Lott announces the arrest of Donald Prevette (DOB: 06-18-61) for defrauding a school out of thousands of dollars.

The scam began in May of 2020 when Prevette was hired to pave a parking lot at Glen Forest School, a private school. Prevette cashed the check for $5,400 in Richland County, then failed to ever complete the work. He became distant, then could not be contacted. It was found that he operated under the name of several businesses, including King Paving, Inc. and American Vis-Co. Investigators believe that there may be other victims and urge anyone who was scammed by this individual to contact the Richland County Sheriff’s Department or submit a tip to Crime Stoppers at crimesc.com.

On 3/01/21, Prevette was charged with Obtaining Goods Under False Pretenses and will be booked at the Alvin S Glenn Detention Center.
