NEW YORK (AP) – A law enforcement official and online marketplace StubHub say cyber thieves got into more than 1,000 customers’ accounts and fraudulently bought tickets for events.

The official told The Associated Press on Tuesday that arrests are expected in a case that sprawls across international borders. The official wasn’t authorized to discuss the case ahead of arrests being announced and spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. is expected to hold a news conference Wednesday with English and Canadian officials. A Vance spokeswoman has declined to comment.

San Francisco-based StubHub says the thieves got account-holders’ login and password information from data breaches at other websites or from malware on the customers’ computers. The company says it detected the unauthorized transactions last year and gave refunds.
