Two men facing felony charges for fraudulent World Series Tickets

Two men are facing felony charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers located fraudulent World Series Tickets in a vehicle during a traffic stop in Wood County. Troopers stopped a 2015 Chevrolet Impala, with Illinois registration, for a lane change violation on Interstate 80 near milepost 69, at 9:31a.m. on Wednesday. Criminal indicators were observed and a consent search revealed World Series Game 7 tickets that appeared to be fraudulent. The tickets were confirmed to be fraudulent with an approximate value of over $4,000. The driver, 36 year old Terry R. Walls of Merrillville, Indiana and passenger, 35 year old Citron A. Mitchell of Chicago, were incarcerated in the Wood County Justice Center. Both are charged with forgery. If convicted, each could face up to a year in prison and up to a $2,500 fine. The investigation is ongoing and more charges could be filed at a later time.
