Police warn about Masters badge sales

Signs of season: Masters badges for sale

Deputies will be issuing warnings today to anyone caught trying to sell their Masters tickets near the Augusta National Golf Club.


But the warnings will end Tuesday.

By Tuesday morning, anyone caught selling their ticket within 2,700 feet of the Augusta National could be subject to a fine as high as $750.

"Normally on the first day we warn a lot of people," said Powell, who spoke from the Richmond County Sheriff's Masters Command Center at the Augusta National.

Sellers won't be able to be any closer to Augusta National than Sherwood Drive to the west, Calhoun Expressway to the east and Ingleside Drive to the south.

Those spotted trying to sell their tickets will, at the very least, have their badges taken away.

Georgia law prohibits anyone but a broker from selling tickets for more than face value.
