In October, Westmoreland County detectives received a complaint from a victim who had paid Tracey McMahan, owner of Hi Grade Shooting Supply, thousands of dollars for a gun that was never delivered. An investigation into McMahan’s business sales soon followed, and the district attorney’s office announced charges against her.
The district attorney’s office said McMahan is facing multiple counts of theft and receiving stolen property after two victims reported similar situations to detectives. The first victim paid $4,600 to buy a combo shotgun through McMahan’s business but never received the gun or a refund. McMahan allegedly provided excuses for the firearm being lost in shipping or damaged before she stopped communicating with the customer.
The second victim tried to sell a Beretta shotgun to McMahan’s business on consignment for $3,500 but never received the funds. Court documents show that in addition to these charges, McMahan was also charged with theft by deception. She was arraigned and released on $50,000 unsecured bond.
