An eastern Kentuckian is facing charges for allegedly trying to sell her neighbor's University of Kentucky basketball tickets in Bath County.

 
State police say 23-year-old Jackie Baty is charged with receiving stolen property under $10,000 and was being held in the Montgomery County Detention Center.  The arrest stemmed from a complaint to police about a suspicious person at the Frosty Freeze Restaurant in the Midland community.  Baty is accused of trying to sell a set of Kentucky basketball tickets. Police determined the tickets belonged to Baty's neighbor in Clay City.  Police say all of the tickets were in the ticket book except for the Wildcats' first game.
