Sheriff’s investigators have arrested two Baxter County juveniles for allegedly selling fake ride tickets for the Baxter County Fair and Carnival.
Archway Amusements, which operates the carnival rides and games at the Baxter County Fair, contacted the Baxter County Sheriff’s Office Wednesday after realizing they had duplicate ticket numbers.
Investigator Brad Hurst interviewed several students. He found that at least 37 fraudulent ride tickets had been scanned and printed at home on a personal computer by a school student. These tickets were then taken to the junior high school and sold to other students for cash.
The two boys, 14 and 15, face theft by deception charges in juvenile court.
