    A man was charged with scamming five people on Craigslist with invalid Disneyland tickets on Friday, Aug. 26, 2016.

    A man was charged with grand theft and other counts Friday for allegedly scamming multiple people with fraudulent Disneyland tickets this year, according to the Los Angeles District County Attorney’s Office.

    Brian Anderton, 43, of Pasadena is charged with five counts including grand theft of personal property, and petty theft, officials said.

    Anderton is accused of advertising Disneyland tickets for sale on Craigslist, and of stealing over $2,400 from five people between January and August of this year, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

    Victims learned their tickets had been part of a scam when they arrived at Disneyland and were told their tickets were invalid, prosecutors said.

    Anderton’s arraignment was expected to take place Friday afternoon in Department 30 of the Foltz Criminal Justice Center, according to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office. His bail was recommended at $59,000, and he faces a maximum sentence of five years in state prison if he is convicted as charged.
