South Jersey Woman Charged With Promoting Fake Concert

What are the charges if you sell tickets to a fake event?

A south Jersey woman is accused of selling fake concert tickets to more than 200 people.  The concert was supposed be headlined by Sheryl Crow.  Tickets were being sold for $65.00 a piece.  Medford Township Police and Lumberton Township Police got involved to coordinate public safety for the event.  When they contacted the venue, the Flying W Airport in Medford, they discovered inconsistencies that led them to the discovery that Sheryl Crow was not actually booked for the event.  The concert promoter was arrested and charged with theft by deception and deceptive business practices.  

Investigators claim that the concert promoter, 42 year old Kelly Bryan of Burlington Township, confessed to selling tickets to the concert knowing that Sheryl Crow would not be performing.  Medford Police Chief Richard Meder “It started out as a legitimate event but Sheryl Crow was just never part of this event, even though it was being advertised that she was the headliner.”  

The Flying W Airport released a statement denying any involvement with the promotion of the concert.  They deny selling any tickets and they say they have cooperated fully with the Lumberton Police Department.
