| February 14, 2020

OIL CITY, Pa. (EYT) – An Oil City man waived his hearing in court on Wednesday on charges related to the sale of methamphetamine from his Oil City residence.

Court documents indicate the following charges against 59-year-old Ronald E. Disharoon were held for court on Wednesday, February 13:

– Manufacture, Delivery, or Possession With Intent to Manufacture or Deliver, Felony
– Possession of Controlled Substance, Misdemeanor

The charges have been transferred to the Venango County Court of Common Pleas.

Unable to post $15,000.00 monetary bail, Disharoon remains lodged in the Jefferson County Jail.

According to a criminal complaint, on January 30, Ptlm. Culp was informed that Jonathon Villmer, who was wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant, was living at Ronald E. Disharoon‘s residence in Oil City. Ptlm. Culp then notified Disharoon’s PA Board of Probation and Parole supervising case agent.

The complaint notes Villmer was detained by the Kittanning-based State Police the following day, and found to be in possession of approximately 82 grams of methamphetamine, in addition to being wanted on the warrant.

According to the complaint, Disharoon’s State Probation and Parole agent was notified of the arrest, and the quantity of methamphetamine, and then conducted a check at Disharoon’s residence. During the check, a known man was detained at the residence after being found to be in possession of a small amount of marijuana. He was then arrested and questioned.

The complaint states the known man told police “everyone who was living at the house” knew Villmer was wanted, and “would joke that it was a matter of time” until Villmer was arrested. The man also reported that he personally observed Villmer bringing large quantities of methamphetamine to the house and selling it from the house.

The complaint notes that when asked about Disharoon’s knowledge of Villmer’s criminal activities, the man stated Disharoon was fully aware that Villmer was wanted by police and fully aware that Disharoon was selling methamphetamine. He also stated Villmer would pay Disharoon in methamphetamine to live there, and that was considered his “rent.”

Disharoon was arraigned in front of Magisterial District Judge Andrew F. Fish at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, February 7.

Court documents indicate the following charges were filed against Villmer through Magisterial District Judge J. Gary Decomo, in Armstrong County, on January 31:

– Manufacture, Delivery, or Possession With Intent to Manufacture or Deliver, Felony (two counts)
– Possession of Controlled Substance, Misdemeanor
– Use/Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Misdemeanor

He remains lodged in the Armstrong County Jail pending $50,000.00 monetary bail.

His case is continuing to make its way through the court system.
