Investigators seized numerous items associated with tattooing and body piercings, and the suspected operator was transported to the Cherokee County Jail following his arrest.

Marlon “Chris” Wedgeworth, 26, of Riverton, was taken into custody on suspicion of Tattooing or Body Piercing or Purporting to be Technician Without a License.
