The owner of Gunsmoke in Wheat Ridge, Colorado, Rich Wyatt waaasnnot charged and not in custody, according to ABC 7 News in Denver.
The Internal Revenue Service began investigating Gunsmoke and conducted a similar raid in March of 2013 after the shop was burglarized that year.
The ATF said they were following up on a warrant from the 2013 investigation, but wouldn’t say what the exact purpose of their investigation was. The U.S. Attorney told 7 News that documents in the case are sealed.
ATF national headquarters in Washington referred TheBlaze to an ATF spokesman in Denver, who could not immediately be reached Thursday.
