Two New York City men arrested for Great Adventure scheme October 5, 2009

Joshua Byrd of the Bronx and Gabriel Pierre of Jamaica, Queens were arrested and charged with forgery and theft by deception.  Both are being held in Ocean County Jail in lieu of $25,000 bail. 

The police were called to the park after receiving a complaint from a woman who was denied entry to the park. The woman told officers she had purchased a hand stamp for herself and nine other people from the two men.  Allegedly, they weere in the parking lot pretending to be Great Adventure employees.

After the men were arrested, the police found $200, the stamp and ink.

The bail seems a little high.  I don’t see this case going very far as the witness seems like she has some issues.  Clearly, you can’t get 1o people in the park for $200.  Thus, she was trying to scam Great Adventure herself. 

Story is here.
