Police Catch Philadelphia Family Sneaking Into An Amusement Park
Morning Call is reporting A Philadelphia woman and nine family members went to Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom on Wednesday night but did not plan on paying to get in, according to court records.
Police say 26-year-old Markeisha Bostic and her relatives were escorted into the park by employees after saying their tickets were being held inside by another group. After they were through the gate, police say, all 10 ran off to avoid having to pay almost $300 for tickets.
South Whitehall police were dispatched at 8:37 p.m. It was unclear how long the group of 10 stayed in the park before they were caught. Bostic admitted to police she had no intention of paying and said it “was her plan the whole time” to enter the park by tricking employees and running off when they were through the gate, records show.
After Dorney Park officials caught up with Bostic, she was charged with theft by deception. She was arraigned by District Judge Michael Pochron and released on $5,000 unsecured bail. Court records did not say if anyone else involved was charged.
