Man Arrested After Manchester FA Cup Ticket Theft

Greater Manchester Police investigating the theft of 900 tickets for the FA Cup semi-final between Manchester City and Manchester United have arrested a 39 year old man.

900 tickets for the FA Cup semi-final between Manchester City and Manchester United were stolen after a Royal Mail van carrying the tickets was targetted on Friday 1st April after collecting them from Manchester City's stadium Eastlands.

A number of warrants were executed in connection with the incidents, but no tickets were recovered and no-one was arrested as a result of the warrants. But a 39-man was later arrested on suspicion of theft and has now been bailed pending further inquiries.


A statement released by the club said: ``Manchester City are working closely with Greater Manchester Police and Royal Mail in connection with the theft of special delivery mail items from a Royal Mail van on Friday.

``A number of tickets for the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley Stadium were stolen. All supporters impacted by the theft will be contacted by the club in the coming days.''

 ``Supporters are strongly advised not to purchase tickets from unofficial sources. Only tickets purchased direct from the club will be valid for the game.''
