NEW YORK (AP) - Police arrested a Bronx man and seized counterfeit Super Bowl tickets with a street value of more than $113,000.

The 42-year-old man faces charges including grand larceny and trademark counterfeiting.

Police detained the man outside his building. A search of the apartment and a van parked outside turned up 124 tickets. Also found were supplies needed for producing the tickets, including holographic and gold leaf paper, glue, a cutter and a hot press.

According to the National Football League, the seizure represents what is believed to be the largest single recovery of counterfeit Super Bowl XLVIII tickets in the New York City area to date.
