Police arrest sixth person on Olympic ticket fraud

Police arrest sixth person on Olympic ticket fraud

British police investigating the fraudulent sale of tickets to events including last year's Beijing Olympics have arrested a sixth person in connection with a company which collapsed in August.
The Serious Fraud Office said Thursday that police this week arrested and released on bail a 65-year-old man in Surrey, just southwest of London.
Xclusive Tickets failed to deliver thousands of tickets it had sold customers for concerts, festivals and the Beijing Games.
The SFO and London's Metropolitan Police began an inquiry in September into the company and its parent, Xclusive Leisure and Hospitality Limited. Four men and a woman were arrested in November.
The International Olympic Committee and U.S. Olympic Committee have already taken legal action against the operators of XL&H, Ltd., alleging that the company posed as a source of legitimate tickets to the Beijing Games.
