DEARBORN (WWJ) - Dearborn police are asking for the public’s help in finding a man wanted for selling fake post-season Detroit Tigers tickets.

The man, identified by police as Kodi Akins, posted ALCS tickets for sale on Craigslist last week under the assumed name “Fred.”

Multiple people responded to the ad and met Akins at different locations within the city of Dearborn in order to purchase the phony tickets.

After arriving at Comerica Park for the game, the victims learned that the tickets were invalid after they were denied entry into the stadium.

Police said they believed that Akins may be responsible for similar scams in or around the cities of St. Louis and Chicago.

Multiple warrants have been issued for Akins’ arrest. He was last seen driving a silver or gray Lexus with Indiana license plate number 282AZI.

Dearborn Police Chief Haddad is urging any citizens who may have been victims in this case to notify the police department where the incident occurred.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to contact the Dearborn Police Tip line at 313-943-3012.
