Westmoreland County District Attorney’s Office has announced that the owner of Hi Grade Shooting Supply, Tracey McMahan, is facing charges for allegedly defrauding customers out of thousands of dollars. The investigation into McMahan began in October after a victim contacted Westmoreland County detectives, claiming that they paid her $4,600 to buy a combo shotgun but never received the gun or a refund.
According to investigators, McMahan allegedly provided excuses, saying the firearm was lost in shipping or damaged before stopping communication with the customer. A second victim also reported a similar situation to detectives, stating that they tried to sell a Beretta shotgun to McMahan’s business on consignment for $3,500 but never received the funds.
McMahan has been charged with several counts of theft and receiving stolen property. In addition to these charges, she is also facing 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.
