A sting operation near the Amway Arena last Sunday, May 24, led to the arrest of two ticket scalpers who were allegedly peddling counterfeit Orlando Magic playoff tickets.
According to WESH-TV, police arrested Anthony Small and Kyler James before Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Magic won Games 3 and 4 to take a 3-1 lead in the series, with Game 5 scheduled for Thursday night in Cleveland. Click on the image below to see a video recap of the game.
