LSU Police arrested two people and issued misdemeanor summonses to two others earlier this month after they learned a Baton Rouge man bought employee wristbands from two gate workers at Tiger Stadium and gave one to his brother.
LSU Police spokesman Capt. Cory Lalonde said his office received a tip that Casey McKenzie had been getting into football games without a ticket and on Oct. 12 investigators saw him pay James Oglethorpe, a gate marshal, for two employee wristbands.
Investigators also saw Casey McKenzie slide Judy Wilson, a gate captain, a cash envelope.
He then gave his brother, Caleb A. McKenzie, one of the wristbands, Lalonde said.
Investigators found out Oglethorpe and Casey McKenzie had done these exchanges before and Oglethorpe admitted he did it with others as well, Lalonde said.
Oglethorpe said he was given between $120-$140 this year and more than $400 the past two years selling employee wristbands, Lalonde said.
Oglethorpe, 34, 16446 S. Amite Road, Baton Rouge, and Casey McKenzie, 33, 111 Ship Drive, Baton Rouge, were both booked into Parish Prison on counts of felony theft, Lalonde said.
Wilson, 59, 7945 Allen Drive, Denham Springs, and Caleb A. McKenzie, 27, 313 Paul’s Lane, Brusly, were both issued a summons on misdemeanor theft, Lalonde said.
