NJ Police Seize Counterfeit Super Bowl Tickets

NJ Counterfeit Super Bowl TicketsNew Jersey police reportedly seized several counterfeit Super Bowl tickets in advance of the big game.

According to police, two men sold counterfeit Super Bowl XLVIII tickets. The suspects also allegedly sold high-quality fake tickets to a number of other NFL games and events, including the AFC divisional round playoff game in Foxborough, MA, the NFC Wild Card game in Philadelphia, the NFL Commissioner’s Party at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in Manhattan, the NFL Honors Party at Radio City Music Hall, and Super Bowl XLVIII parking passes at Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.

The two suspects reportedly hailed from New York City and Philadelphia.

According to authorities, the Super Bowl tickets would have allowed the buyer to get into the venue; however, the seats would have been occupied by the legitimate ticketholders.

Under New Jersey law, selling counterfeit tickets usually falls under N.J.S.A. 2C:21-32, the New Jersey Trademark Counterfeiting Act. The statute criminalizes the sale of any counterfeit item with the intent to deceive or defraud some other person. Of course, the suspects in this case could also be charged with the more general offense of forgery. Regardless of the exact charge, the suspects face significant consequences if they are convicted.
