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. The investigation began in October after a victim contacted Westmoreland County detectives, accusing McMahan of not providing goods in exchange for payment and ignoring communications from customers.
McMahan allegedly provided excuses, saying the firearm was lost in shipping or damaged before she stopped communicating with the victims. As a result, one customer paid $4,600 for a combo shotgun through her business but never received the gun or a refund. Another victim tried to sell a Beretta shotgun to McMahan’s business on consignment for $3,500 but never received the funds.
The district attorney’s office charged McMahan with several counts of theft and receiving stolen property and additional charges filed by Pennsylvania State Police. Court documents show that she was also charged with theft by deception. She was arraigned and released on $50,000 unsecured bond.
The investigation into McMahan’s business sales highlights the importance of ensuring that customers receive their goods and services as promised when conducting business transactions. It also serves as a reminder that businesses must be held accountable for their actions and face consequences for any wrongdoing they may commit against their customers.
