News release courtesy of College Station Police:
On 09/14/13 a 55 year old Dallas man reported a Fraud to the College Station Police Department when he discovered the four TAMU vs Alabama tickets he had purchased for $1700.00 on Craig’s list were fraudulent. The man made the online purchase and agreed to meet the seller at The McDonald’s on George Bush where the transaction was completed. The fraud was discovered when the buyer was turned away at the gates of Kyle Field because the tickets were forgeries.
The Officer’s investigation revealed that someone was still in the area attempting to sell phony tickets. The Officer saw a man matching the seller’s basic description holding some tickets while talking to a couple on the side of the rode at George Bush and Coke St. When the Officer approached and attempted to contact the suspect, the man fled and began tearing the tickets he had to pieces and throwing them away. The suspect was detained after a brief chase and arrested for Evading Detention.
As the investigation continued it was determined that the suspect was in fact not the one who had sold the tickets to the original complainant, but he was in possession of 7 counterfeit tickets he was trying to sell as well.
Terry Williams, a 46 year old man from Florida was arrested and charged with Evading Class B Misdemeanor), seven counts of Forgery (State jail Felony) and Tampering with Evidence (Third Degree Felony) due to his attempt to destroy the tickets as he fled.
