ELKRIDGE, Md. (AP) -- Authorities want to hear from other possible victims of a northern Virginia man who they believe sold concertgoers counterfeit tickets.
Howard County police said in a news release that 34-year-old Shannon M. Seeber, of Manassas, Virginia, was recently arrested after selling fake Black Sabbath concert tickets to a buyer in Elkridge.
The victim says he bought four tickets to the Aug. 21 Bristow, Virginia concert from Seeber after arranging to meet on Craigslist.
Police say Seeber had fake tickets to concerts for Adele, Drake, and Barbra Streisand in his possession when he was taken into custody. He faces multiple charges, including forgery and possession of false government identification.
Anyone who believes Seeber may have sold them fake concert tickets is being asked to contact Howard County Police at 410-313-2200.
