A Grinnell woman has been charged after allegedly posted a fraudulent Craigslist ad for tickets to the Iowa/Nebraska football game Nov. 25.

Tabitha Jensen, 28, was charged Oct. 28 with second-degree theft.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Jensen posted the advertisement — which offered tickets on the 30-yard line at a cost of $1,050. The complaint said she was contacted by a man about the tickets, and she allegedly claimed to be the girlfriend of the person who had posted the ad.

The alleged victim used his credit card to pay $375 on Aug. 13, with the remaining $675 charged on Sept. 14. The complaint said he never received the tickets.

The complaint said Jensen was identified by subpoena information as the person engaged in the reported ticket fraud.
