Warrants issued in Saints ticket scheme
BATON ROUGE- An arrest warrant has been issued for a 28-year-old accused of acting as a ticket broker and selling Saints football tickets but never providing the tickets.
Matthew Alexander Dunn faces felony theft and issuing worthless checks charges, according to documents obtained by WBRZ News 2. The warrants are related to two separate victims of the alleged ticket scheme.
One victim told police they purchased 34 tickets to two Saints games for $3,348 and another victim said they purchased ten tickets to two games for $1,164. Both told investigators they never received the tickets and when they asked Dunn for their money back they were issued checks but when the checks were cashed the banks returned them as having been written from a closed account.
In both situations, the victims said the purchase was orchestrated through a ticket exchange agreement made at two parking lots: one on Airline Highway and another on Jefferson Highway.
Dunn's listed address is in Alexandria, police records show.
