ALTON, Ill. (KMOX) — The Alton Police Department and members of the Illinios Law Enforcement Alarm System made an arrest on a drug-related search warrant Thursday.

A several-months-long investigation led to the arrest of 44-year-old Scottie Musgraves, who was taken into custody at his home in the 2400 block of Humbert Street during a raid early Thursday.

Musgraves has been charged in Madison County with four counts of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance within 500 feet of a park. His home is directly across the street from Salu Park.

More drug charges are anticipated based on evidence found during his arrest. He's being held on $250 million bond.

Musgraves' home came to police attention after they received numerous complaints from neighbors about suspected drug activity there.
