Couple arrested for selling "Golden Tickets" to heaven

The police confiscated Sh 1,000,000 in cash from the couple

Yep. Simply present the golden ticket at the pearly gates and you’re good to go.

How you would take said ticket with you is not clear but this wasn't how Tito and Amanda Watts crossed the line from ridiculousness into illegality.

Misrepresent

“People can sell tickets to heaven.” a Jacksonville police spokesman said.

“But the Watts' misrepresented their product. The tickets were just wood spray painted gold with ‘Ticket To Heaven - Admit One’ written in marker."

"You can’t sell something as gold when it’s not," the spokesman added, and "that’s where the Watts crossed the line into doing something illegal.”

Defiant

You learn something every day. Police said that upon arresting the Florida duo, they also confiscated Sh 1,000,000 in cash, five crack pipes and a baby alligator.

Tito Watts, who is clearly 100 percent of sound mind, said in a statement:

"I don’t care what the police say. The tickets are solid gold."
