Two charged with selling counterfeit Packer tickets
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Two Illinois men are accused of selling counterfeit tickets at last weekend's Packers-Seattle Seahawks game in Green Bay.
Police say counterfeit ticket sales have been a problem all season at Lambeau Field. Authorities expect counterfeiters will be in Green Bay this weekend for the NFC Championship game, targeting hotels and bars.
In the latest incident, undercover officers arrested the two Chicago area men last Saturday. They're being held in the Brown County Jail on $25,000 cash bond.
Police say they had 12 counterfeit tickets. Six were sold to fans before the game last Saturday.
