Oil City Man Faces Charges Involving Sales Of Firearms, Gold

September 26, 2013

An Oil City man, who was the subject of an investigation involving allegations that he was operating a business without the proper licensing, has been ordered held for court on other charges, concerning accusations that he was illegally transferring firearms and dealing in precious metals without a license.

45 year-old Robert Piercy, who was the owner of a second-hand shop on East Second Street in Oil City, is also alleged to have been improperly buying items from underage individuals, as young as 11, who allegedly signed paperwork attesting that they were 18 or older.

Piercy already had his license to do business in Oil City rescinded, and his South Side shop was closed in June.  He has since reached agreement with city officials that would allow the shop to re-open, but under new ownership, and with Piercy as manager.

On Wednesday, Piercy was bound over on eight charges, including operating a business without a license, purchasing firearms or loaning firearms for money without a license, trafficking in precious metals by an unlicensed dealer and the corruption of minors.
