The Allegheny County Treasurer's Office closed a Pitcairn bar Wednesday accused of owing more than $3,700 in delinquent drink tax payments.

Sheriff's deputies padlocked Gone Country at The Firehouse Lounge on Second Street, the treasurer's office reported.

The bar, owned by D&D Enterprises, stopped paying its drink tax in March 2013, according to court records. The owners could not be reached for comment.

The bar owes about $1,700 in back property taxes and has been fined $1,850 by the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, records show.

This is the second bar the treasurer's office has closed this month for not paying the county's 7-percent tax on alcoholic drinks. Deputies padlocked The Bridge Tap House & Grille in Versailles on Friday for owning more than $50,000 in taxes. The bar remains closed, according to the treasurer's office.
