(Pittsburgh) -- Four New York City men have been jailed in Pittsburgh on charges they possessed and were selling counterfeit Stanley Cup hockey playoff tickets.

Online court records show 19-year-old Juan Ramirez, 18-year-old Shawn Stewart, 45-year-old Gerald Vailes and 28-year-old Taylor Williams remained jailed unable to post bond Friday.

The arrests were announced Friday, though police say Williams had been in custody since May 15. The others were arrested Tuesday and Wednesday.

Police say they also seized more than $2,000 in cash and 52 fake tickets during the roundup.

Online court records don't list attorneys for the men.

Police say the arrests were the result of a month-long investigation.
