Pittsburgh-Area Gun Store Owner Faces Theft Charges Following Investigation into Sales


Nov 21, 2023

In October, a victim contacted Westmoreland County detectives after having paid Tracey McMahan, owner of Hi Grade Shooting Supply, $4,600 to buy a combo shotgun through her business. However, the customer never received the gun or a refund. The district attorney’s office launched an investigation into McMahan’s sales practices and found that she allegedly provided excuses for the missing firearm, saying it was lost in shipping or damaged before stopping communication.

McMahan has also been accused of receiving stolen property after another victim tried to sell a Beretta shotgun to her business on consignment for $3,500 but never received the funds. She has been charged with several counts of theft and receiving stolen property by the Westmoreland County District Attorney’s Office. Additionally, she is facing charges filed by Pennsylvania State Police.

The district attorney’s office said that McMahan was arraigned and released on $50,000 unsecured bond. It is yet to be seen what will happen in court as McMahan faces charges related to her sales practices at Hi Grade Shooting Supply.
