Pittsburgh-Area Gun Store Owner Faces Theft Charges after Business Investigation


Nov 21, 2023

Tracey McMahan, the owner of Hi Grade Shooting Supply in Westmoreland County, is facing charges after an investigation into her business sales. According to the district attorney’s office, McMahan is accused of multiple counts of theft and receiving stolen property.

The investigation began after a victim contacted Westmoreland County detectives in October, claiming that they paid $4,600 for a combo shotgun through McMahan’s business but never received the gun or a refund. The victim allegedly provided excuses from McMahan, stating that the firearm was lost in shipping or damaged before she stopped communicating.

Another victim also tried to sell a Beretta shotgun to McMahan’s business on consignment for $3,500 but never received the funds. McMahan is also facing additional charges filed by Pennsylvania State Police for not providing goods in exchange for payment and ignoring communications from customers.

McMahan was arraigned and released on $50,000 unsecured bond. The case continues as she faces charges of theft by deception, which allege that she intentionally misled customers about the availability and delivery of firearms.
