Rutherford commissioner charged in bogus concert ticket conspiracy

Posted:
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -

A Rutherford County commissioner was taken into police custody after a grand jury charged him with two counts of felony theft for his alleged involvement in a bogus concert ticket conspiracy involving tens of thousands of dollars.

Matthew Young, who is also a Murfreesboro firefighter, was arrested Wednesday evening at a Rutherford County fire hall before being transported to the county line where Metro police assumed custody of him.

Young, 31, is accused of participating in a scheme where at least three victims were promised concert and event tickets in exchange for large amount of money.

An investigation showed the three victims paid more than $65,000 in anticipation of the tickets, but were never given anything in return.

Young's bond is set at $50,000.

Kenneth Cooper, 43, and Harvey Felsher were also indicted in connection to the crime.
