Pittsburg Man And Woman Sell Parking Spots They Don’t Own

You think you’re safe until you return to the lot to find you either got a ticket or your car towed. Confused, you wonder why because you paid for the parking. Well maybe you should make sure whoever you paid was legit.
You Need Parking? Come On In!
A couple in Pittsburg walked to an empty lot that’s attached to a building and sold parking to people. The Pittsburg Steelers played the Arizona Cardinals and people going to the game were looking for cheaper parking. According to Yahoo News, this man and woman were flagging game goers down, who were looking for cheap parking. They would take money from them and then let them in the lot. The only thing was that couple didn’t own the lot or work in the building attached to it. They just found the empty lot, and started charging people to park in it.
Yahoo News reports that the lot was on Allegheny Ave. on the North Side. Local police said they got a call about 20 minutes before the start of the game about the man, who was wearing a yellow vest. They also reported a woman who was waving a red flag in front of a sign that said “Parking.”
That’s Not Your Lot
According to the police, the owner of the lot didn’t give permission for the lot to be used as parking. When they approached the door of the building, no one answered. The man and woman were both apprehended by the police, but the man ended up fleeing. He was later found and both the man and woman have pending charges.
