Seattle police are warning people about a man who they believe has scammed dozens of people with counterfeit tickets to "Hamilton."
Police said detectives started investigating a man in June 2017 after surveillance cameras showed him breaking into a Wedgwood restaurant. Detectives then learned the same man had stolen ticket stock paper during another break-in at a University District music venue.
The man was arrested at a grocery store parking lot after trying to sell tickets to the musical "Hamilton."
Police said a warrant was served on the man’s house and detectives recovered the remaining ticket paper and a laptop used to print the forged tickets.
