EAST WILLIAMSBURG — A woman who bought 20 tickets to this summer's Major League Baseball All-Star Game at Citi Field was swindled of her $2,872 purchase, cops said.
The baseball fan, who ordered tickets from the official New York Mets website in January to be sent to her home address on Johnson Avenue, moved after buying the passes and requested that the tickets be sent instead to her new apartment, a police report said.
But the passes — for the first All-Star baseball game at Citi Field since 1964 — had already been delivered to the Johnson Avenue building, where a man who signed as "Dempsey" took the package on June 21, officials said.
"She gave no one at that listed address authority to take possession of [the tickets]," the report said.
No suspects have been arrested for the incident.
