A gun store owner in Westmoreland County is facing charges after an investigation into her business sales, the district attorney’s office announced. Tracey McMahan, owner of Hi Grade Shooting Supply, is accused of taking thousands of dollars from customers for guns that were never delivered and failing to provide refunds.
The investigation began after a victim contacted Westmoreland County detectives in October. According to the district attorney’s office, one customer paid McMahan $4,600 for a combo shotgun through her business but never received the gun or a refund. McMahan allegedly provided excuses, saying the firearm was lost in shipping or damaged before stopping communication with the customer.
Another victim tried to sell a shotgun to Hi Grade Shooters Supply on consignment for $3,500 but never received payment. The district attorney’s office said McMahan is facing several counts of theft and receiving stolen property as a result of these incidents. She also faces additional charges filed by Pennsylvania State Police.
McMahan was arraigned and released on $50,000 unsecured bond. The district attorney’s office urged anyone who has done business with Hi Grade Shooting Supply to come forward if they have been affected by similar incidents.
