 A felon on parole used stolen credit cards to buy $18,000 worth of Six Flags Magic Mountain and Knott’s Berry Farm theme-park tickets and then attempted to sell them on Craigslist, authorities said Tuesday.

William Redd, 37, of Los Angeles, was arrested on suspicion of felony grand theft.

Undercover detectives from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station set up a sting in Santa Clarita, working closely with park officials in following an electronic trail and ultimately unraveling the fraud, which dated back to last year.

Redd is also accused of buying parking tickets and at least 12 ticket packages.

Detectives also recovered additional evidence directly linked to the crimes at the suspect’s home in the 1100 block of W. 77th Street in Los Angeles.

Redd is being held without bail pending future court proceedings.

The investigation continues; anyone with information regarding this suspect or this case is asked to call detectives at (661) 255-1121.
