A former employee of TicketNetwork in South Windsor and an ex-Harvard coach has been arrested, accused of stealing tickets to the NBA playoffs, selling them and pocketing the cash.
In May 2013, TicketNetwork contacted South Windsor police because they suspected an employee, Evan Loring, 29, then of Wallingford, of stealing the tickets, according to police.
Police obtained the sales information and computer tracking for the tickets on other reseller websites and later obtained an arrest warrant charging Loring with second-degree larceny.
On Wednesday, South Windsor Police arrested Loring, now of Chocorua, New Hampshire on the warrant. He was held on a $100,000 surety bond and will appear in Manchester Superior Court this morning.
In July 2012, an Evan Loring, of the same Wallingford address, was arrested in New York, accused of stealing more than $80,000 from Bar Taco, where he worked as an assistant manager.
At the time, officials from the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office said Loring had been an assistant football coach at Harvard University, but was released and then was hired as a bartender at Bar Taco at 1 Willett Avenue in Port Chester, New York.
In November 2012, Loring pleaded guilty to one count of third-degree larceny, a felony in the state of New York.
In February 2013, he was sentenced to five years of probation and ordered to pay $52,000 in restitution, according to the district attorney's office.
