THUNDER BAY -- Advertising Tragically Hip concert tickets online led to the arrest of a 42-year-old man. Monday.
The victim of a recent break-and-enter called police on Dec. 27 when he noticed a posting on Kijiji selling the Tragically Hip concert tickets. The listing identified the row and seat number of the tickets, which led the victim to identify them as stolen.
Officers with the Thunder Bay Police Service contacted the seller and made arrangements to purchase the tickets.
Two undercover police officers attended a North Court Street address. The ticket seller showed the undercover officers the tickets and was then arrested and taken into custody.
The ticket seller was charged with possession of stolen property under $5,000 and has been released with a future court date.
