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


Nov 21, 2023

The owner of a Westmoreland County gun store, Tracey McMahan, is facing charges after an investigation into her business sales, the district attorney’s office announced. According to the Westmoreland County District Attorney’s Office, McMahan, who owns Hi Grade Shooting Supply, is charged with multiple counts of theft and receiving stolen property for allegedly taking money from two customers without delivering the guns they purchased.

One customer paid McMahan $4,600 to buy a combo shotgun through her business but never received the gun or a refund. McMahan allegedly provided excuses, saying the firearm was lost in shipping or damaged before stopping communication with the victim. A second 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 said it began investigating McMahan after a victim contacted Westmoreland County detectives in October. Court documents show that she was also charged with theft by deception. McMahan was arraigned and released on $50,000 unsecured bond.
