Boston Police report nabbing a man from Naugatuck outside the Garden last night on charges he was not just holding counterfeit tickets for good luck.
Jeffrey Hall, 29, was only issued a summons for the counterfeit Game 3 tickets they say he was holding around 8:30 p.m., but was brought into custody on a warrant issued in Wrentham District Court for selling forged tickets and reselling real tickets to an unspecified event.
Police urge people who really want to see the Celtics in person to "only buy tickets from authorized ticket agencies:"
Fans who purchase tickets from a secondary source are taking a chance and do so at the buyer’s own risk. Officers want to proactively curb such activity and encourage buyers to only purchase from official vendors. Purchasing via other means creates the potential for possessing an invalid and/or counterfeit ticket.
