Man Charged With Theft Involving Phillies Tickets

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Wilmington police have charged a Newark man with theft involving more than $37,000 in Philadelphia Phillies tickets.
    
Authorities say the tickets were purchased by The News Journal Media Group but mistakenly delivered to an address for Corporation Trust Services last month.
    
A News Journal employee later noticed that the tickets were being sold on Craigslist. Police posing as buyers arranged to meet the seller and determined that the seller, who was not charged, got the tickets from 40-year-old Scott LaScala.
    
Authorities say LaScala signed for the tickets after they were mistakenly delivered to his office, then began distributing and selling them.
    
Lascala was charged this week with theft and conspiracy and released on $2,000 bond.
    
Police say the Phillies have voided all the 324 season tickets connected with the incident.
