3 men face charges in fake Super Bowl ticket case
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Federal authorities say three Atlanta men are accused of trafficking counterfeit Super Bowl XLVII tickets that were destined for New Orleans.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials say 57 fake tickets and about $7,000 in counterfeit money were seized after a Jan. 31 traffic stop in Sumter, Ala., by the Alabama Department of Public Safety.
ICE says 53-year-old Dwight E. Wilcoxson; 47-year-old Anthony A. Hunter; and 45-year-old Darryl A. Wesby are charged with conspiring to transport and sell counterfeit tickets to the Feb. 3 Super Bowl.
Hunter and Wilcoxson are also charged with possession of counterfeit U.S. currency.
It wasn't known Wednesday whether the men have attorneys representing them.
