Mailroom manager charged after selling and giving away newspaper’s Phillies tickets

Hundreds of Philadelphia Phillies season tickets — 324, to be exact — and 81 parking passes were supposed to be sent to News Journal Media Group publisher Howard Griffin. (That Gannett unit publishes the newspaper in Wilmington, Delaware.)

Instead, the baseball team sent the package — valued at over $37,000 — to the CT Group. Scott Lascala, the mailroom manager there, took the tickets and had a field day. He gave them to friends and co-workers, and sold some on Craigslist.

The publisher’s secretary spotted them on Craigslist and called police. (She started checking there after UPS claimed the tickets had been delivered.)

Lascala, 40, was charged Tuesday with theft and conspiracy.
