MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- Two men accused of taking money for tickets to a concert featuring pop music stars Lady Gaga and Adam Lambert that never happened turned themselves in to the Martinsburg Police Department on Friday, the agency said in a news release.

Sherman L. Loy and Dean R. Desana, both 45, have been charged with a felony count of obtaining money by false pretenses.

Loy and Desana were arraigned by Berkeley County Magistrate JoAnn Overington, who set bail at $5,000 for each man, according to magistrate court records. Both men were released on bond after bail was posted, according to Detective J.D. Luciano.

The arrests stem from an ongoing investigation involving Loy and Desana and the concert that was supposed to be held April 24 at Sam Michaels Park near Harpers Ferry in Jefferson County, according to police.

The event did not take place, and no tickets were distributed, police have said.

Police said people interested in the concert traveled to the salon "Hair by Luke" and paid money for tickets that were supposed to arrive in the mail for the concert but never did, according to police.

The police department's investigation is ongoing, Luciano said Friday.
