Pittsburgh-Area Gun Store Owner Charged with Theft after Business Investigation

The owner of a Westmoreland County gun store, Tracey McMahan, is facing charges after an investigation into her business sales, according to the district attorney’s office. Hi Grade Shooting Supply, owned by McMahan, is facing multiple charges after two customers paid her thousands of dollars for guns that were never received.

The investigation began in October when a victim contacted Westmoreland County detectives. According to investigators, the victim paid McMahan $4,600 to buy a combo shotgun but never received the gun or a refund. McMahan allegedly provided excuses for the delay or damage of the firearm and stopped communicating with the victim. A second victim tried to sell a Beretta shotgun to McMahan’s business on consignment for $3,500 but never received any payment from her.

McMahan was charged with several counts of theft and receiving stolen property and is also facing additional charges filed by Pennsylvania State Police. Court documents show she was accused of not providing goods in exchange for payment and ignoring communications from customers. She was arraigned and released on $50,000 unsecured bond.
