Two Cotton Valley men charged for investment scam

Two Cotton Valley men were arrested this week after allegedly scamming investors out of almost $50,000.

Detectives executed a search warrant Wednesday at the residence of Michael Musgrove, 31, and Ricky Walker in order to obtain record for a fraudulent business that had scammed three victims. When evidence was recovered, Musgrove admitted his involvement.

One victim invested $30,000, a second invested $15,000, and the last invested $4,500. Lead detective Scott Tucker said
