Public Assistance Requested


Nelson Police are seeking public assistance regarding an investigation into fraudulent Shambhala Music Festival Tickets.

On August 7, 2014, information was received by Nelson Police Department that fraudulent festival tickets were being sold for $300 and when the purchasers attended the music festival they were being advised by festival staff that the tickets purchased were not valid.

The Nelson Police Department conducted an investigation which resulted in two further incidents of fraud and the arrest of a 35 year-old female and her 49-year old partner, both from Nelson. Both parties are facing multiple charges.

The police are continuing an active investigation into this matter. Anyone with information that could assist in in this investigation is requested to contact the Nelson Police Department at 250-354-3919.
