WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. (AP) - A 37-year-old Marshfield man is charged with 15 counts of theft after authorities say he took more than $46,000 from 15 Wood County residents in a Green Bay Packers ticket scam.

The Wisconsin Rapids Daily Tribune Media reports (https://wrtnews.co/1KzhA2j ) Patrick Blachut was charged Friday.

The criminal complaint says Blachut approached 15 people in September and offered to sell them Packers tickets. Several paid more than $6,000 each for what they thought would be season tickets.

The complaint says Blachut admitted to taking the money.

Online court records do not list an attorney for Blachut in this case. He was charged in October with a similar count in Eau Claire County. The office of his attorney in that case would not accept messages Friday night.
