A man who goes by the name Mary Sneed when selling concert tickets is a scammer, according to Alpharetta police, who are asking for the public's help to catch him.
Their suspect is actually Jackson Douglas Sneed, 29, and he's wanted on numerous charges of felony forgery, said executive officer George Gordon of the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety.
Sneed has sold dozens of counterfeit concert tickets to events at Alpharetta's Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, Gordon said. Sneed allegedly has done the transactions in person and on online social network sites.
A person claiming to be one of Sneed's victims posted an angry warning on the internet site for Craig's List. The writer said he bought "bogus" concert tickets from Sneed.
The writer's warning was typed in all capital letters.
"IF HE RIPPED YOU OFF, PLEASE FILE A POLICE REPORT!" according to the posting. "BEWARE."
The posting included two telephone numbers -- one was disconnected and the other was answered with a recorded message to leave a number and the call would be returned the next day.
Police are asking any victims to keep their fake tickets and file a police incident report. They're also asking that anyone who knows Sneed's whereabouts call the police department's anonymous tip line: 678-297-6307.
Sneed is described as 6-foot tall, weighing 150 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.
