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, the owner of Hi Grade Shooting Supply, is being accused of multiple counts of theft and receiving stolen property.
The district attorney’s office said one customer paid McMahan thousands of dollars for a gun that was never received and another tried to sell a shotgun but never got the money for it. The investigation into McMahan began after a victim contacted Westmoreland County detectives in October. According to investigators, the victim paid McMahan $4,600 to buy a combo shotgun through her business but the customer never got the gun or a refund. McMahan allegedly provided excuses, saying the firearm was lost in shipping or damaged before she stopped communicating, the district attorney’s office said.
A second victim who tried to sell a firearm through Hi Grade Shooters Supply reported a similar situation to detectives. The district attorney’s office said 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 theft and receiving stolen property charges, McMahan is also facing charges filed by Pennsylvania State Police for other crimes related to her business sales. She was arraigned and released on $50,000 unsecured bond, according to the district attorney’s office.
