SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Only a handful of home games remain for the Kings, and with the future of the franchise in Sacramento in doubt, die-hard fans may hope to land what may be the team’s last tickets.
After the theft of a charity founder’s car, some tickets may land fans a meeting with security instead.
Authorities said about 60 tickets to the April 11th game versus the Oklahoma City Thunder are still missing after someone stole the car from the founder of Sweet Dreams, a charity that designs rooms for sick children.
Jennifer Richards said a thief drove her car away while she ran inside her home to grab something off her counter.
“I walked out of my garage, looked around, and my car was gone,” she said.
Jennifer’s car was recovered Friday, but there was no sign of the stolen tickets. The Kings replaced the charitable tickets, but say there’s a chance the thief may try to sell them.
The tickets, all from section 101 between Rows S to X, have a face value of about $95, but will be worthless if they are used at the April 11 game.
“When they scan these tickets, they will come up as stolen,” Jennifer said.
Kings officials said anyone trying to use the tickets will be escorted to security officers and questioned about how they obtained the tickets. They will not be allowed to watch the game.
