Charges are pending
A moving company employee has been arrested on a larceny complaint after Edmond police said he stole a book of tickets to 35 New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets basketball games.

Charges are pending against Byron Bernard King, 19, Oklahoma City.

King, who was working for All Muscle Moving last week, is accused of taking the tickets from the kitchen counter at a home in the 1600 block of Eagle Drive.

The tickets were valued at $2,100.

Police reported that another employee found the missing tickets in King's jacket after the owner asked where the tickets had gone.

King first denied taking the tickets, but later admitted to police he had taken them because he wanted to go to the games, according to a police report.
