NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City man accused of selling forged tickets to Broadway's hottest show has been indicted.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. said Tuesday that Anthony Huger sold or tried to sell forged "Hamilton" tickets three times after advertising on Craigslist. He faces charges including 10 counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument.

Vance says a couple agreed to meet Huger on a street corner in January and buy three tickets for $450. They were denied entrance to the musical.

In February, a woman became suspicious about tickets her husband bought. Authorities say she worked with police and arranged to meet Huger to buy four more tickets. He was then arrested.

Huger's attorney declined to comment.

The sold-out show recently won a Pulitzer Prize for drama.
