U.S. Attorney Philip Sellinger says 32-year-old Darick Nollett of Heislerville previously pleaded guilty to one count of aiding and abetting the making of a false statement during the purchase of a firearm.

Sellinger's office says,

Nollett was not legally permitted to purchase firearms because of a 2015 felony conviction. In 2018 and 2019, in order to obtain firearms, Nollett caused other individuals to purchase five firearms for him. These individuals falsely stated on U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives (ATF) Firearm Transaction that they were the actual buyer/transferee of the firearm when, in fact, Nollett was the actual buyer/transferee.

Cops executed a search warrant of Nollett’s property in 2020 and recovered more than 30 guns along with ammunition and accessories.

In addition to the prison term, Nollett was sentenced to three years of supervised release and he was ordered to forfeit all of the guns and accessories that were seized.
