A man who was wanted by Georgetown police for illegal tattooing and other alleged crimes turned himself in Monday afternoon.
Marvin Newton II of Georgetown, 38, remained in jail Tuesday afternoon.
Along with the illegal tattooing charge, Newton is also charged with operating a business without a license, forgery less than $10,000, receiving stolen good less than $2,000, and presenting a fraudulent check.
The tattooing charge stems from an incident in September when a man called police and reported Newton had tattooed his 17-year-old daughter without parental consent.
He performed the procedure at a residence on the corner of Shade and Moss streets in Georgetown, police say.
Georgetown Police Capt. Nelson Brown said the forgery charge stems from an incident in May in which Newton allegedly took the car title from a vehicle belonging to his girlfriend’s mother and forged her name. He then used the title to secure a loan.
He is also accused of selling items that did not belong to him at a local pawn shop, Brown said.
