London 2012 Olympics: Police arrest 16 ticket tout suspects
Police seeking to prevent illegal ticket sales at the Olympics have warned spectators to think twice about buying from touts after making 16 arrests since the start of the Games.
Five people were held on suspicion of ticket touting just hours before the opening ceremony on Friday.
Of these, a 57-year-old German and a 30-year-old Slovakian woman were charged with ticket touting, Scotland Yard said.
Officers made a further 11 arrests on suspicion of ticket touting on Saturday, while two people were held in relation to the alleged theft of two Olympic Lane passes.
Police said anybody buying tickets from unofficial places could end up with their credit card details being stolen.
