Hi Grade Shooting Supply owner Tracy McMahan is facing charges following an investigation into her business’s sales, the district attorney’s office said. The Westmoreland County District Attorney’s Office accused McMahan of multiple counts of theft and receiving stolen property after a customer paid her thousands of dollars for a handgun that was never received, and another tried to sell a shotgun but never got paid for it.
The investigation began in October when the victim contacted Westmoreland County detectives. According to investigators, the victim paid McMahan $4,600 to purchase a combination shotgun through his business, but the customer never received the gun or a refund. McMahan allegedly made excuses saying the weapon was lost in transit or damaged before she stopped communicating.
Another victim who tried to sell firearms through Hi Grade Shooters Supply reported a similar situation to detectives. The district attorney’s office said that the second victim tried to sell the Beretta shotgun to McMahan on consignment for $3,500 but never received the funds.
McMahan was arraigned and released on a $50,000 unsecured bond. The Westmoreland County District Attorney’s Office also stated that she faces additional charges filed by Pennsylvania State Police. Court documents show that she was also charged with theft by deception.
