Former UPS Employees Arrested for Stealing Football Tickets
(2007-09-26)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - Three United Parcel Service workers have been charged with stealing University of Alabama football tickets from customers. A UPS spokesman said the employees worked at the UPS Center in Tuscaloosa.

The company said all three were fired for their alleged involvement.

Tuscaloosa Police Chief Ken Swindle said in a statement Wednesday that a ticket broker purchased the tickets from one of the individuals and then sold them to someone else. When the buyer presented the ticket at a recent game he was questioned by UA ticket officials.

Swindle said UPS launched an investigation and notified police.

Darryl James Crawford and Velmer Mallisham were each charged with theft of property - their bonds were set at $20,000 and $15,000, respectively. Another individual - Brooks Thomas was charged with receiving stolen property. His bail was set at $10,000.

All were placed in the Tuscaloosa County Jail, pending posting of bond.

Swindle said the University sent replacement tickets to those who did not receive the tickets.
