A couple was placed behind bars for selling Golden Tickets to Heaven to naive people, police in Florida said.
Jacksonville Police said that Tito and Amanda Watts were arrested after being accused of selling the tickets to hundreds of people.
The couple, who sold the tickets on the street for $99.99 a piece, told buyers that the tickets were made of solid gold and each ensures the buyer a place in heaven by simply presenting it the gate.
Police said that while selling tickets to heaven is legal, Watts’ tickets were not made of solid gold so he was defrauding his customers.
The tickets were wood and covered with gold paint. Tito Watts denied that the tickets were made of wood. He said that he doesn’t care what the police say.
He also said that Jesus gave him the tickets outside a KFC restaurant, and an alien promised him to take him and his wife to a planet made of cocaine, where he would be able to do drugs all day for free.
Amanda Watts said that all she wanted is to leave Earth and go into space to smoke cocaine. Police said that they seized more than $10,000 and five crack pipes.
A man who identified himself as Dixon, said that his friend saw this couple on the street, selling these tickets for more than 4 weeks.
