Ticket-takers arrested at N.C. State Fair
FROM STAFF AND WIRE REPORTS
Two ticket-takers are charged with stealing S9BO in cash and tickets since
the fair opened Thursday, authorities said.
An 87-year-old Raleigh man and a 55-year-old Raleigh woman who
worked at the same admissions booth may have pocketed and re-sold the
tickets, then taken the money from the second round, police said.
“They weren’t doing a large number a day,” fair spokesman Brian Long said. “I’m
still scratching my head as to why they were doing it in the first place.”
Long isn’t sure how much the ticket-takers were paid.
“Maybe they felt like it wasn’t enough,” he said.
Tickets at the gate are $7 for adults and $2 for children.
