Non-Support Warrant Sweep Results in 47 Arrests

Post Date:10/13/2017 9:54 AM

Somerset County Sheriff Frank J. Provenzano has announced that his office conducted a recent sweep of individuals charged with being delinquent in making child-support payments.

The operation conducted Sept. 26 to 28 involved more than 36 Sheriff's Officers, operating in teams, who served outstanding warrants and made arrests. A total of 47 men and women who owe a combined total of $952,298.50 in child support were arrested. Among those arrested was Michael Phillips, who has a child support warrant out of Middlesex County as well. Dominic Lumia was arrested on a child support warrant out of Monmouth County.  Jahwil Thomas was arrested on two failure-to-appear-in-court warrants, out of the Franklin Township and Bridgewater Township municipal courts, respectively.

“This operation was conducted to remind parents of the importance of making regular child support payments and hopefully renew their commitment to do the right thing,” said Sheriff Provenzano. “Child support is a safety net for many Somerset County families. Children depend on child support for their basic needs such as food, shelter, healthcare and back-to-school clothing. Conducting these roundups gives us the ability to better serve children and families with the financial support they need and deserve.

“The roundup was a great success as far as the statistics show,” he said. “What we don’t see is how many delinquent parents pay up once they know we are looking for them. Knowing that they face possible arrest encourages delinquent parents to uphold their obligations or face incarceration. It creates a compounding effect of payments that lasts weeks after the roundup.”

Names of those arrested and amounts owed and collected are shown below:
