COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- The University Police Department (UPD) has obtained felony warrants for the arrest of two men accused of selling counterfeit tickets at a Texas A&M University football game.
William Gerard Brown and Clifford Lamar Pitts, both of Atlanta, Georgia, allegedly were in possession and sold counterfeit tickets for the Texas A&M vs Tennessee football game on October 8, 2016.
Brown was arrested on October 8 and charged with five counts of trademark counterfeiting; he was later released from the Brazos County Jail on a $15,000 bond.
UPD received several reports from people saying they'd been scammed when they bought tickets that turned out to be useless. As a result, a plain-clothes officer was assigned near Kyle Field to look for the culprit(s).
In one of the reports, four victims, who
purchased counterfeit tickets, took a photograph of the individual and provided it to the investigators. Police determined the person was Clifford Lamar Pitts.
Pitts is facing four counts of forgery of a financial instrument, while Brown is charged with one count.
The state jail felony is punishable by a prison term of up to two years and/or a $10,000 fine.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Brown and Pitts is asked to contact the UPD at 979-845-2345.
