Man accused of trying to sell stolen UofA tickets

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A man is in custody for allegedly trying to sell stolen season tickets to University of Arizona football games on the Internet.

Pima County Sheriff's officials say they received a report of a theft from a mailbox on Aug. 19.

The victim told authorities that some personal mail was stolen along with a set of high-value UofA season tickets.

Sheriff's officials say they received information Tuesday that the tickets were being offered for sale on Craig's List.

Undercover deputies were able to arrange a meeting with the seller and he was arrested.

Authorities say 27-year-old Emilo Pesina is being held on suspicion of trafficking in stolen property.

It was unclear Wednesday if he has a lawyer yet.
