I found an interesting article when I was digging around online for some MN Wild gossip for my readers. With the headline, Woman Allegedly Steals MN Wild Tickets from Work and Sells Them on Craigslist, I knew this was going to be a good read.
Apparently, a 29-year-old employee of Culligan Water, based in Minnetonka, Maggie Brynn Hoeg, is being charged with selling the company's Minnesota Wild tickets for her own benefit on her work computer. She sold $5,000 worth of tickets!
Back in February, the Minnetonka Police were informed that 92 Minnesota Wild tickets, which were $88 each, had been stolen and sold from Culligan, allegedly by Hoeg.
Before she was questioned, Hoeg quit by e-mail and left her job.
When the Minnesota Wild office was contacted, they had the 92 tickets cancelled and reissued. However, a man who had purchased some of the tickets through Craigslist said he had bought the tickets from Hoeg and attended several games. When he informed Hoeg that the tickets had been cancelled, she allegedly said her father had lost some of them. She said she would replace them when after she was reissued tickets from the Wild but never did. Hoeg allegedly paid the man back $250 to date.
Oh, the things people do for a quick buck!
