A Colorado gun shop owner who appeared on the reality show "American Guns" is accused of illegally selling firearms after losing his license.

U.S. Attorney John Walsh announced Thursday that 52-year-old Richard Wyatt was indicted by a grand jury on conspiracy and tax charges and dealing guns without a license Tuesday.

According to the indictment, Wyatt surrendered his license in 2012 for unspecified violations of federal laws and regulations. He allegedly continued to sell guns from his suburban Denver shop by conspiring with another gun shop that had a license.

Prosecutors allege that after customers paid for guns at Wyatt's shop, they were sent to the other shop to fill out background-check paperwork and pick up the guns.

Wyatt surrendered to authorities Thursday. His lawyer didn't return a call seeking comment.
