City parolee caught selling fake tickets to ‘Hamilton’ using Craigslist

A Manhattan parolee was caught selling bogus tickets to ultra-popular Broadway musical “Hamilton” on Craigslist, prosecutors said Tuesday.

Anthony Huger, 32, was indicted for possession of a forged incident, petit larceny, criminal impersonation and attempted petit larceny for allegedly selling or trying to hawk fake tickets three times.

On Jan. 8, a Westchester couple met Huger on the Upper West Side where they paid him $450 for three tickets to the production which was awarded with a Pulitzer Prize for drama on Monday, according to the Manhattan DA.

They were turned away at the door of the Richard Rodgers Theater where they presented the forged Ticketmaster vouchers, prosecutors said.
