Former Rockwood public works director Tom Pierce amassed an arsenal of at least 11 guns and plenty of ammo on the city’s dime, according to a state investigative audit released Wednesday.
Pierce, who was indicted last week, is accused of using a city credit card and store card to purchase at least $32,725 in items between 2009 and 2012.
The charges include two counts of unauthorized use of a credit card and official misconduct.
