2 Men Arrested For Pull-Tab Scams At Local Bars

Two men have been arrested following a pull-tab scam that involved at least four local Fond du Lac establishments.

Fond du Lac Police were called out Christmas Eve Day (12/24/2021) shortly before 7:10 p.m. to the Coliseum Annex located at 91 S. Main St. in downtown Fond du Lac.

Employees at The Coliseum said a man had been scamming them, gluing winning pull tabs back together, and then presenting them again as winning tabs.

At least three locations reported being scammed in the pull-tab scheme, including The Coliseum ($250), Korneli’s Bar($500), and the Press Box($500), while O’Davey’s caught the forgery before any money was dispursed.

A 23-year old male was arrested on charges of forgery/altering, aling with charges of possession of drug paraphernalia and 4 counts of bail jumping.

A 36-year old male was held on charges of possession of meth, possession of drug paraphernalia, forgery/altering, and a Probation and Parole hold.

Additional charges are likely to be filed once further investigation and follow up is completed.
