Tattoo You And Get Busted
Sparta Police have busted two area men for illegal tattooing
children. 24 year old Logan Tormoen and 20 year old Andrew Turnmire of La Crosse now face charges.
In late May, police received an anonymous tip alleging several students who attended Sparta Alternative Independent Learning School had received tattoos at an apartment in downtown Sparta. The Department was able to identify five minors between the ages of 16-17 that received tattoos from Tormoen and Turnmire. The minors paid between $5-$30 for a tattoo and did not have the permission of a parent.
Tormoen was arrested on June 12th and later released from the Monroe County Jail. Turnmire has not been located and charges are being sought through the Monroe County District Attorney’s Office.
