LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A husband and wife have been charged with selling counterfeit passes to the Louisville Zoo.

Police say they arrested 30-year-old Christopher Bayens and 30-year-old Amanda Bayens on Sunday morning in the zoo’s parking lot after an employee notices several patrons had used counterfeit passes to get in.

WDRB in Louisville reported (https://bit.ly/1zkkwwY ) that the couple had at least 53 sheets of passes in their possession, with each sheet worth $42.90 - for a total of $2,273.70 in passes.

Police say they were selling the $42.90 sheets for $10 apiece.

Police say the zoo lost at least $95.70 from counterfeit admissions coupons that had already been redeemed.

Both are charged with theft by deception and criminal possession of a forged instrument.

Jail records did not list an attorney for either person.
