Investigations into online ads were launched on Tuesday and Thursday by the police service's vice unit. Undercover officers met with the sellers and paid above face value for the tickets.

As soon as the transaction was made, the sellers were arrested.

A 37-year-old man and a 50-year-old man were arrested in the separate incidents.

The Winnipeg Jets says one of them is a season ticket holder who has since has his account cancelled.
