Man Arrested in Portland for Selling Stolen Disneyland Passes
Friday, September 29, 2017
Michael McCrobie, 39, was arrested on charges of Theft in the First Degree by Deception, Felony Computer Crime (two counts) and Attempt Theft in the First Degree by Deception.
On Tuesday September 26, a Youth Services Division officer responded to Ventura Park School on the report of a theft.
When the officer arrived, he learned that on September 22, 2017 the victim had purchased two three-day passes to the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. The victim had found the three-day passes for sale on Craigslist. The passes were listed for $150.00 apiece. The victim contacted the seller and purchased two of the three-day passes prior to her departure to California. When the woman arrived at the front gates to the Disneyland Resort on September 23, she was told the tickets were stolen. The woman and her daughter were forced to buy new passes to the resort.
Upon returning to Portland, the victim contacted Portland Police and reported the fraudulent ticket sales. The Youth Services Division officer who took the report contacted detectives at the Detective Coordination Team for further investigation.
During their investigation, detectives searched Craigslist and found more Disneyland Resort three-day passes for sale. Detectives contacted the Craigslist seller and planned a meeting to purchase Disneyland Resort passes.
The suspect was taken into custody shortly after selling the stolen tickets to the officer.
The suspect was identified as McCrobie. He was interviewed by detectives and lodged at the Multnomah County Jail.

Detectives believe there are other people who unsuspectingly purchased stolen tickets from McCrobie in the Portland Metropolitan area.
