Hundreds of personal bank accounts are at risk after a security breach was discovered involving ticket sales for the Summit County Fair rodeo and demolition derby.

Summit County spokeswoman Julie Booth said officials became aware of the breach Sunday after a number of county employees and members of the community reported experiencing fraudulent charges on their bank accounts.
