Homicide Suspect Caught In Iowa Selling Bogus Concert Tickets
An Illinois murder suspect was busted after trying to pull off a ticket scam.
Police were called after someone had used Craigslist to buy fake tickets for tonight's (4/13) Willie Nelson concert at Five Flags Center in Dubuque. As reported by CBS 2, investigators called the number on the Craigslist ad and arranged to buy tickets from 20-year-old Natrell Jackson of Chicago. Undercover Dubuque PD officers later met with Jackson and arrested him after a brief struggle.
He has been charged with multiple counts of forgery and theft. Investigators also found Jackson to have a warrant for homicide in Cook County, Illinois.
The Five Flags Center encourage anyone wishing to verify their tickets to take a photo of the front and back and send it by messaging the venue's Facebook page, or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
