Lusby Man Sentenced in October 2019 Shooting

On January 26, 2021, Dru Michael Sultzaberger, 20, of Lusby was sentenced to serve 17 years’ incarceration for his role in an October, 2019, shooting.  The sentence included a term of 5 years without the possibility of parole.


Sultzaberger became involved in an altercation at a party with the victim’s brother.  Armed with a handgun, Sultzaberger drove to the victim’s residence to seek revenge.  He fired several shots into the victim’s vehicle.  One shot struck the victim in the face.  During the investigation, Sheriff’s deputies recovered 3 firearms from Sultzaberger, drugs, and a large amount of cash.


The case was prosecuted by Assistant State’s Attorney, Lee Ann Bell.  Calvert County State’s Attorney, Robert Harvey, wishes to commend Ms. Bell, Det. Ted Yates of the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office, and the entire investigative team for their outstanding work in this case.  The outcome reinforces Mr. Harvey’s commitment to seeking significant periods of incarceration for people who commit violent acts in Calvert County.
