That's exactly what's been happening at Classen Boulevard and E. Boyd Street in Norman.Sometimes, “No Parking” signs are not enough of a warning. Especially at the last home game, when residents in a complex watched one man illegally collect possibly $1,000 dollars.
Once that man filled up the lot, Slate said "he just blazed off."
That's because BNSF actually owns the lot. Something Brian Slate didn't realize until it was too late.
"It was the perfect scam, I guess," said Slate. "Never seen anything like that before."
Norman police call it enterprising. It's completely illegal and happens every year.
"That is obtaining cash or merchandise by false pretenses...," said Captain Tom Easley with the Norman Police Department. "It's a fraud in other words."
Captain Easley suggested fans park in a location they have had a good experience parking at in the past.
Norman police are not currently investigating this case, but if they do get leads for parking scams, they will charge the individuals with a crime.
