BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Federal authorities say three Atlanta men are accused of trafficking in counterfeit Super Bowl XLVII tickets that were destined for New Orleans.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials say 57 fake tickets and about $7,000 in counterfeit money were seized after a Jan. 31 traffic stop in Sumter by the Alabama Department of Public Safety.

ICE said in a statement that the men -- 53-year-old Dwight E. Wilcoxson; 47-year-old Anthony A. Hunter; and 45-year-old Darryl A. Wesby -- are charged with conspiring to transport and sell counterfeit tickets to the Feb. 3 Super Bowl in New Orleans.

Hunter and Wilcoxson are also charged with possession of counterfeit U.S. currency.

It wasn't known on Wednesday whether the men have attorneys representing them.
