Federal Authorities Taking Over Super Bowl Ticket Probe

Date posted - February 14, 2012

The <i>Des Moines Register</i> says federal authorities are taking over the probe in the phantom ticket case in which a Boyden woman allegedly sold but did not deliver at least $500,000 worth of Super Bowl tickets.

Forty-four-year-old Ranae Van Roekel has still not been charged with a crime.  She allegedly sold discount and advance tickets that Super Bowl officials say do not exist.  The NFL says no tickets for any Super Bowl go on sale any more than two weeks before the game.  Van Roekel allegedly sold them over a year in advance.

Due to the multi-state nature of the case, Iowa attorneys have asked the US Attorney’s office to get involved.

Again, that’s according to the <i>Des Moines Register</i>.
