In October, Westmoreland County detectives received a report from a victim who had paid Tracey McMahan, the owner of Hi Grade Shooting Supply, thousands of dollars for guns that were never delivered. An investigation into McMahan’s business sales revealed that she is facing multiple charges after providing excuses and ignoring communications from customers.
The first victim paid $4,600 to buy a combo shotgun through her business but never received the gun or a refund. McMahan allegedly provided excuses such as saying the firearm was lost in shipping or damaged before stopping communication. A second victim tried to sell a Beretta shotgun to McMahan’s business on consignment for $3,500 but never received the funds.
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 that she was also charged with theft by deception. She was arraigned and released on $50,000 unsecured bond after being accused of not providing goods in exchange for payment and ignoring communications from customers.
