Clarksburg Police Department Shuts Down Two Additional Drug Houses With Ordinance

The Clarksburg Police Department announces the enforcement of their 15th and 16th abatements under the City’s Crime Free Rental Housing Ordinance Article 1767, “Drug House” Ordinance. The locations of the abatements issued were 152 Ocello Avenue and 1601 Hamill Avenue. The Clarksburg Police Department has determined that illegal possession, delivery, storage, or trafficking of controlled substances or other drug activities were occurring at these residences.  

Police Chief Robert Hilliard issued an abatement order and citation to Bill Viglianco for the property located at 152 Ocello Avenue due to illegal drug activity. Also an abatement order was issued to Zachary Ware for the property located at 1601 Hamill Avenue due to illegal drug related activity.

Both Mr. Viglianco and Mr. Ware are set to appear before the City of Clarksburg’s Municipal Judge on May 2, 2019 at 9a.m.

Under the provisions of the Drug House Ordinance, property owners are subject to fines if they fail to take appropriate action to abate the problem after 30 days of notification. The Orders of Abatement contain compliance stipulations including: evicting problem tenants, other actions to prevent reoccurrence of illegal drug activity, and mandating criminal background checks on future tenants to insure they are free from convictions for prostitution, illegal gambling, illegal possession, storage, or delivery of or trafficking controlled substances, or other illegal drug activity. The City Drug House Ordinance applies to owners of both rental and owner occupied property.
