Three men are facing criminal charges for allegedly re-using wristbands at the Austin City Limits Music Festival.
Police say Michael Martin, 33, Nathan Beck, 20, and Cameron Beck, 24, were selling wristbands on Craigslist.
They escorted people into the festival, took the wristbands off, and did it all over again, according to court documents.
They were caught after an undercover officer paid one of them $150 for a wristband. After he got past the gate and returned his wristband, uniformed officers arrested one suspect, then arrested the other two when they went to Zilker Park to look for him. Police found out their wristbands had been scanned 104 times -- which is worth almost $11,000 to festival organizers, police said.
"We want to remind people if you are going to ACL Festival, just a safety reminder, do not purchase wristbands from anybody you do not know, or any unidentified source," said APD Officer Destiny Silva.
The trio is charged with theft of services and organized criminal activity.
