Police: Man selling bogus soccer tickets busted in Columbus

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) --Columbus police say a man accused of selling fake tickets to a soccer match between teams from the United States and Mexico has been arrested on charges including forgery.

Anthony Dunston, 43, of Xenia was arrested Tuesday on charges of forgery and possession of criminal tools after he allegedly sold fake tickets to a man in a meeting arranged through Craigslist. Police said the tickets were found to be counterfeit after the Sept. 7 purchase when they were compared to one sold through an authorized ticket agent.

He was scheduled to be arraigned on the charges Thursday in Franklin County Municipal Court.
