Solon Police were dispatched to the Solon High School to investigate a theft. Investigating officers were told by a school representative that the school had contracted with a company (Ticket Roar) to conduct ticket sales and merchandise sales on line and deposit the money by ACH by to the schools minus a fee. On 2 dates in August 2019 the drama club held events in which Ticket Roar sold the tickets for the event. To this date the money owed has not been transferred back to the school. Also, football tickets and season passes were sold in this manner during the summer of 2019 and the school has not received payment. The school contacted Ticket Roar and learned that they no longer support ticket sales and attempts to contact the parent company, Home Team Marketing have met with negative results. The school is owed in excess of $12,000.00. The Solon Detective Bureau is investigating the case.
