A Berryville man who was already facing drug and weapons charges after an incident in January was arrested on similar charges last week.

A Carroll County Sheriff’s Office deputy arrested Keeton Disheroon, 18, outside the Carroll House Apartments on Tuesday, June 2. Disheroon was booked into the Carroll County Detention Center on charges of simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms, possession of meth with intent to deliver, criminal use of a prohibited weapon, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana.

According to an affidavit written by CCSO Cpl. Daniel Mehn, Mehn was advised by dispatchers of a suspicious male in a silver truck at the apartment complex. After arriving on scene, Mehn encountered Disheroon, who acknowledged that the truck was his, the affidavit says. Mehn saw a sawed-off shotgun in the truck, according to the affidavit. After removing the shotgun from the truck, Mehn found the magazine tube loaded with three rounds, the affidavit says. Mehn then handcuffed Disheroon and placed him in the back of Mehn’s patrol car, according to the affidavit.

While checking the truck for other weapons, Mehn discovered threes glass smoking devices with burned residue, $172 in cash, a set of digital scales with white crystal residue, a plastic bag of containing approximately 2 grams of suspected marijuana and a cigarette package containing a cellophane wrapper and a clear round container with approximately 1.37 grams of suspected methamphetamine, the affidavit says.

Mehn field-tested the round container and the digital scales and they both tested positive for methamphetamine, according to the affidavit.

Disheroon appeared before District Judge Dale Ramsey on Friday, June 5. Ramsey found probable cause to charge Disheroon and set his bond at $50,000. As of Monday morning, Disheroon remained in custody at the county jail. His next court appearance on the most recent charges is scheduled for 9 a.m. Monday, July 6, in Carroll County Circuit Court in Berryville.

Before Tuesday’s arrest, Disheroon had been free on bond while facing multiple charges stemming from a January arrest. In that incident, Disheroon allegedly led Green Forest police on a high-speed chase before abandoning his truck in an open field. In that incident, police reported finding a rifle and pistol in the truck as well as more than 70 grams of marijuana, methamphetamine residue, other drug paraphernalia and more than $1,200 in cash. According to an affidavit in that case, Disheroon told police he was unemployed and living in his truck.

In that case, Ramsey set bond at $2,500. Ramsey ordered that Disheroon be subject to random drug testing and be confined to his parents’ home except for work. Disheroon’s next court appearance in that case is scheduled for 9 a.m. Monday, June 22, in Carroll County Circuit Court in Berryville.
