That's one way to get cheap tix: Cops bust Busch ticket scheme
Written by Robert Niles
Police in Virginia have arrested a 21-year-old Busch Gardens Europe employee in a discount ticket scheme.Tweet
According to a Hampton Roads Daily Press report, Justin Sands, a front gate employee, would pocket visitors' tickets as they entered the park, instead of scanning (and voiding) them. Sands then allegedly sold the $52 tickets online for $10 to $20 each.
Busch Gardens wouldn't comment. Sands is facing felony embezzlement charges.
