Virginia man arrested for selling fake concert tickets in Elkridge

A Virginia man was arrested by Howard County police after selling fake Black Sabbath concert tickets to a buyer in Elkridge.

Shannon Michael Seeber, 34, of Manassas, Va., was charged with theft scheme, forgery, possession of false government identification and drug possession. Police are asking any other possible victims to contact them at 410-313-2200.

Earlier this month, police said, a resident reported Seeber's actions following their arrangement to buy four tickets to Black Sabbath's concert at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Va., on Aug. 21. After getting the tickets at a public area in Elkridge, the resident told police they contacted Ticketmaster and learned the tickets were fraudulent.

Police later found and arrested Seeber, finding more fraudulent tickets to other concerts, including Black Sabbath, Barbara Streisand, Drake and Adele.

Seeber was released on $35,000 bond, police said.
