A federal grand jury today indicted three Atlanta men for trafficking in counterfeit Super Bowl XLVII tickets, announced U.S. Attorney Joyce White Vance and Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent in Charge Raymond R. Parmer Jr.
 
The grand jury also charged two of the three men with possessing and concealing counterfeit U.S. currency. The fake money and 57 counterfeited tickets were seized following a Jan. 31 traffic stop in Sumter County.
 
The indictment filed in U.S. District Court charges Dwight E. Wilcoxson, 53, Anthony A. Hunter, 47, and Darryl A. Wesby, 45, with conspiring to transport and sell, and possessing counterfeit tickets to the Feb. 3 Super Bowl in New Orleans.
 
The indictment also charges that Wilcoxson, with intent to defraud, possessed and concealed $4,820 in counterfeit $100 and $20 bills on Jan. 31. Hunter faces the same charge for possessing and concealing $2,240 in counterfeit $100 and $20 bills.
 
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney J. Pat Meadows is prosecuting the case.
 
An indictment is merely an allegation and the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
