ASU football ticket theft ends with charges

KAIT in Jonesboro reports the arrest of two men in connection with efforts to resell 10 season tickets to Arkansas State University football games that had been stolen from a mailbox.

The tickets were put up for sale online. An undercover bought some and then made arrests.

The tickets were said to carry a value of $3,250. Story didn't say what the undercover cop had to pay for the tickets. Less than face, I'd guess, judging by Stub Hub pricing for ASU ticket resale — as low as $6 for the contest against the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers. (By way of comparison, Stub Hub is asking almost $30 for the cheapest seats to the Razorback opening game Thursday at War Memorial Stadium against Florida A&M.)
