The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office has arrested seven men and two women during a warrant sweep aimed at people wanted for failing to pay child support. The three-day roundup was conducted by members of the sheriff’s office uniformed and investigations bureaus, who started off Tuesday morning with 90 warrants in hand for men and women who are wanted on civil warrants for being delinquent on child support obligations.

Sheriff Paul Babeu said, “We were successful in getting the message out there that we are looking for people with child support warrants. Deputies went to houses and businesses from Apache Junction to Oracle trying to find the persons named on the warrants. We found that the majority of the persons we were looking for had left the county or moved from the address on file.”

The sweep netted almost $14,000 in bond monies from the nine arrests. Among the arrestees were a 37-year-old Eloy woman who owed over $1400 in child support and a 40-year-old Collidge man who owed $3000 in child support, turning himself in to the court when he was told deputies were looking for him.

Sheriff Paul Babeu went on to say, “While the community is thinking about Father’s Day this weekend, it’s important that the Sheriff’s Office reminds everyone that there are fathers, and mothers, who are not paying their court-ordered child support. We encourage those who aren’t paying court-ordered child support to make arrangements with the Superior Court to take care of the obligation. If you don’t, we will be out there looking for you.”

Inquiries about delinquent child support can be made to the Pinal County Superior Court at 520-866-5400 or www.pinalcountyaz.gov.
