Arapahoe County Sheriff’s deputies have taken a report involving a fraudulent parking ticket. The victim noted several inconsistencies on the ticket and notified law enforcement. While this appears to be an isolated incident, investigators want the community to be aware.
The parking ticket was placed on a vehicle parked in a private parking lot in the 12200 block of E. Arapahoe Road. The ticket appears to be issued by the city of Englewood, but the parking lot location is in the city of Centennial. While this does not appear to be a direct attempt to defraud someone financially, we do take the production of fraudulent tickets seriously and are actively investigating this case.
Private property owners can take action against vehicles on their property, but there are few parking violations that law enforcement organizations can issue parking tickets for on private property. Most commonly that would include handicap parking violations. We encourage anyone who has received a parking ticket that is suspicious to contact the organization listed as issuing the ticket or local law enforcement.
