Arrests in Concert Scam

On this day both Mr. Sherman L. Loy and Mr. Dean R. Desana were arrested by this agency. Both subjects have been charged with a felony charge of obtaining money by False Pretenses.

The defendants each cooperated by turning themselves in, at separate times, to the Martinsburg Police Department. Both subjects were processed and brought to the Berkeley County Magistrate courthouse, where they were arraigned by Magistrate J. Overington. Both subjects were released on bond, each posted by a bonding agency.

These arrests are from an ongoing investigation involving the above individuals and the alleged concert which was to take place on April 24, 2010 and to feature both celebrities Lady Gaga and Adam Lambert. The event, however, did not take place and no tickets were ever distributed.

It was found, through investigation that from March 16 – 18, individuals traveled to the Hair salon, “Hair by Luke”, and paid money for tickets which were supposed to arrive in the mail for the concert.

The investigation is continuing.
