Britisher arrested for theft of T20 tickets
[ Sunday, 30 September 2012, 02:40.22 PM GMT +05:30 ]
The police arrested a British national who stole 100 ICC T20 world cup tickets worth over Rs.75000 from a ticketing counter in Colombo.

The 54-year-old man was taken into custody at a ticket booth in the capital after sales staff alerted the police, an official said.

"He had gone up in the queue for tickets and somehow pocketed the ticket books that were on a counter," police spokesman Ajith Rohana said. "We found four ticket books in his possession."

He said each book had 25 tickets for Monday's game. Some were priced at 250 rupees and the others were 750 rupees each.

Rohana said the British national had also in his possession three other tickets which he may have purchased at the same ticket sales unit.

"We will take him before a magistrate tomorrow and take further legal action," Rohana said.
