CHICAGO (AP) - The FBI and the Chicago Police Department are asking for the public’s help in locating five Chicago men accused of running a counterfeit scheme that included sales of phony Bears, Cubs, Bulls and Blackhawks tickets.

An FBI statement says 16 people were charged under state law in February stemming from an investigation dubbed, “Operation Bear Down.” All 16 were charged in Cook County Circuit Court with forgery in connection with the alleged scheme, which included forgery of concert tickets. Eleven of those charged were taken into custody.

A flier released by the FBI on Monday names the five allegedly on the run. They are 30-year-old Rashawn Mays, 30-year-old Lamont Flowers, 27-year-old Joseph McKnight, 25-year-old Rodney Pole and 19-year-old Marcus Pole. All have Chicago addresses.
