The Hazleton Standard-Speaker - - LOCAL -

But­ler Town­ship po­lice say a White Haven man at­tempted to pur­chase a gun he wasn’t al­lowed to have.

Bran­don M. Nagy, 29, was charged with state­ment un­der penalty. The charge was filed Dec. 20 and a hear­ing was held be­fore Mag­is­te­rial Dis­trict Judge Daniel O’Don­nell, Su­gar­loaf Town­ship, on Jan. 3.

Ar­rest papers state that on Aug. 15, Nagy at­tempted to pur­chase a ri­fle from a town­ship gun store and when fill­ing out pa­per­work to buy the weapon claimed he was never ar­rested.

He was de­nied the gun af­ter his in­for­ma­tion was en­tered into the Penn­syl­va­nia In­stant Check Sys­tem be­cause he was con­victed of a crime where he could have been in jail for over a year, court papers state.

Nagy pleaded guilty in 2006 to a count of theft by un­law­ful tak­ing and re­ceiv­ing stolen property, po­lice wrote, and was sen­tenced to 12 months pro­ba­tion.

The sen­tence was re­voked in 2007 and he was or­dered to four to 12 months in jail fol­lowed by one year pro­ba­tion, court papers state.
