3770-4-07 Stolen and destroyed tickets.

A sales agent is financially responsible for all tickets consigned to that sales agent's location. If tickets are stolen or destroyed, the sales agent shall report that fact to the director within the time set forth in any internal management regulations established by the director. In the case of stolen tickets, the sales agent is also required to file a report with the local or state police, or in the case of destroyed tickets, a report must be filed with the local fire department. Upon such notification to the director, and provided that the sales agent files a notarized affidavit with the commission stating the facts of the case, the director shall provide the sales agent with a supplementary delivery of tickets in the manner set forth in these regulations or in internal management regulations and directives of the director. The sales agent is subsequently required to file any official police or fire report for stolen or destroyed tickets with the director within the time set forth in any internal management regulations established by the director. The sales agent shall not be required to pay for the stolen or destroyed tickets until so notified by the director, but shall remain liable to pay the sale price less any authorized deductions for such tickets unless, upon investigation by the director, the director determines and notifies the sales agent that the sales agent shall be relieved of the obligation to pay for some or all of such tickets. The director may adopt internal management regulations elaborating the stolen or destroyed ticket policy, and the circumstances under which credit will be given, or under which the sales agent will be relieved of the obligation to pay, for stolen or destroyed tickets.
