Police arrest suspect of reservation-fraud at the Oktoberfest
Police arrested a man, who had sold reservations in the Hippodrom for up to 3000€ and smuggling people into the tent.
At the Oktoberfest, the alleged fraud had smuggeld the buyers into the tent. It seems that waitresses had helped, keeping the places vacant, so that they buyers actually did get a seat in the Hippodrom.
The whole thing was discovered by a watchful tent manager. The proprietor of the Hippodrom, Sepp Krätz, said that he was very proud that his staff had helped to uncover the scheme.
Reservations are a precious thing to have at the Oktoberfest.
