A woman has been charged with selling fake Disneyland tickets on Craigslist. Alisa Yenokyan, 22, of Hollywood, was arrested this week and charged with seven counts of forgery and one count of grand theft, all felonies. She has been advertising the tickets on Craigslist for a price of $50; Disneyland one-day tickets are $87. Six families purchased the tickets at her Glendale apartment, where she showed them a fake ID card stating she was authorized to sell the tickets. The families' tickets didn’t work when they got to Disneyland, so they attempted to get their money back from Yenokyan, who was unable to be reached.

Detectives contacted her through her Craigslist ads and arranged to meet her to buy four tickets. She was arrested at the meeting location. Glendale detective Jonathan Owen said Yenokyan had been selling the fake tickets for several years.

Yenokyan has pleaded not guilty.
