Cuff 'Em: Tiger Woods Driving Up Scalper Prices, Armed Robbery Hauls
“A man who authorities say lured a Cobb County minister to Augusta last week with the promise of eight Masters Tournament tickets, then robbed him of $14,400 at gunpoint, was arrested and charged Saturday with armed robbery.”
The guy you are seeing to the left is the robber, 29-year-old William Bradford Pierce. Police say he responded to minister dude’s request for badges and set up a meeting. A gun was pulled and Pierce was off with the cash.
The minister was working for a ticket broker agency and was going to pay nine times face value. Looks like even robbers are trying to take advantage of the Tiger Woods effect.
