Gaston, SC (Paul Kirby) - Mark Christopher Hodges, 27, a Gaston man with a long history of involvement with law enforcement agencies, is now being sought by deputies again after they believe he was involved in an illegal chop shop and other activities that were broken up in a multi-agency raid last week. According to a spokesman for the sheriff’s office, they now have arrest warrants for Hodges.
Last week, six others were arrested and jailed in regard to this case. Some were arrested for unlawfully operating a chop shop and a host of other gun and drug charges. Wayne Boron, Andrew Chamberlain and Robert Flowers were those three men. Three women were also arrested on a number of drug charges at the same location on Blackville Road. These charges against Hodges were brought as a result of information obtained during that raid. Investigators processed items from the chop shop and all items have been identified and accounted for.
Anyone with information about Hodges’ whereabouts should call Crimestoppers at 1-888-Crime-SC.
