DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Two men are sitting in the Cuyahoga County Jail after police say they were selling fake baseball tickets to Tuesday's big game.

Reginald Henderson, 37, of Atlanta, GA, was charged with felony counterfeiting sale after he was busted by an undercover Cleveland police officer.

Henderson was scalping tickets to Game 1 of the World Series outside of the designated area at E. 9th and Prospect around 5:45 p.m., according to the report. Police asked Henderson for identification and he could not produce it. Police took the tickets to the ticket window and found they were counterfeit.

About two hours later, police arrested Simeon Gunn, 35, of Detroit, MI after the tickets he was attempting to scalp were found to be counterfeit as well. He was charged with counterfeiting sale, a fifth-degree felony.

No court dates have been set.
