Orlando police Officer Wendell Robey was a high-school resource officer who moonlighted at Universal Orlando. Investigators said he had another side business: illegal Universal and Walt Disney World ticket sales on the classified advertising website craigslist.com. On Friday, Robey, 40, and his wife, Shaton, 35, surrendered at the Orange County jail on several felony and misdemeanor charges relating to the business, including grand theft, trafficking in stolen property and identity theft.

The old saying holds as true today as it ever did, "A fool and his money are soon parted."

Hmm, no wonder why those resort lines are always were so long at Universal, Those key cards didn't expire so they kept bringing them back and getting unlimited cutting privileges! Those things always driven me crazy and now I see why the express lines were always so darn crowded.

Well, I assumed this was yet another case where people bought tickets that were no good. That's what I get for commenting before reading. It's staggering that they got away with this as long as they did.
