CINCINNATI (AP) — Police in southwest Ohio say they have arrested two men carrying counterfeit versions of tickets for two key National Football League games this week.
The Hamilton County sheriff's office says two suspects stopped Wednesday on Interstate 74 for an alleged traffic violation were carrying 60 bogus tickets total for Thursday night's game in Cincinnati and Sunday's game at Indianapolis.
Sheriff's investigators say the tickets had a supposed face value of more than $8,000, and probably could have been sold for much more.
The unbeaten Bengals host the in-state rival Cleveland Browns, while Denver quarterback Peyton Manning leads the unbeaten Broncos to face his former team, the Colts.
The suspects from the New York City area face felony counts of forgery and criminal simulation. No attorneys were listed in court records.
