MURRELLS INLET, S.C. (WMBF) - A Murrells Inlet man was arrested Friday in connection to a child pornography investigation.

The Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office said 62-year-old Manuel Marquez was taken into custody by investigators. The department was assisted by the Internet Crimes Against Children task force and the FBI.
