MADISON (WKOW) -- A Wisconsin Department of Justice agent accused of illegally selling and manufacturing weapons won't face criminal charges.
Jay Smith was a supervisor in Superior when one of his agents reported he had been making and selling guns to other officers without a federal permit.
The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has been investigating Smith since December.
Assistant Attorney General Kevin Potter told the Wisconsin State Journal the criminal investigation into Smith's activities is over, and the U.S. Attorney's Office in Minnesota won't be filing charges.
He says the DOJ will now decide whether to launch an internal investigation into Jay Smith.
