Three dummies locked up for selling phoney Cedar Point tickets to real people

James Copp, 26, John Berg, 23, and Lindsey Berg, 24, were arrested by Middletown detectives and charged with theft and forgery.

Cops say the trio had been manufacturing tickets to Cedar Point and selling them to unwitting victims on Craigslist.

The scam was discovered when a man from Monroe met John Berg in the parking lot of Walmart and paid $220 for tickets. He didn't find out they were counterfeit until he arrived at Cedar Point.

Cops seized the equipment used to make the tickets.  

They are also warning people to use caution when purchasing such items over the internet.
