Admit Three To Jail

MARCH 19--A trio of Florida scammers is facing felony fraud and grand theft charges for allegedly selling tickets to a nonexistent rap concert. The show, scheduled for tonight at a Tampa nightclub, purportedly was to include performances by Trick Daddy, Yung Joc, and Trey Songz.

However, as seen in this police evidence photo, concertgoers had a reason to question the legitimacy of tickets being peddled by Tabitha Barnes, 19; Shanise McCray, 18; and Antonio Miller, 36. None of the phony promoters seems to know how to spell the word 'admit.'

Barnes, McCray, and Miller (pictured here, left to right, in Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office mug shots) were collared after undercover cops bought $300 worth of phony tickets. (2 pages)
