After his conviction of embezzlement in July of 2016, Mark E. Graham, is back in custody after allegedly violating probation.  He lasted about 9 months before finding a reason to update his mug shot. He was originally convicted for selling fraudulent Heavenly lift vouchers in 2016.

Back in the 15-16 season, fraudulent passes started showing up at Kirkwood, Heavenly, and Northstar. According to the Tahoe Daily Tribune, they had stole around 1,000 vouchers valued at $120 apiece.  Although they had about $100,000 worth of tickets, they were selling them on Craigslist for $20-$40 each. You probably would’ve had better luck hustling in the parking lot, boys.

After a couple undercover deputies found the tickets online, they were caught red-handed. Graham is just one of the three men accused of embezzlement back in 2016.  One of these kids was bound to show up again. Lessons to be learned here — don’t steal from Vail and don’t sell stolen tickets on Craigslist.
