Non-Support Warrant Sweep Results in 58 Arrests

Post Date:04/27/2018 4:00 PM

Somerset County Sheriff Frank J. Provenzano has announced that, from April 17 to 19, his office conducted a sweep of individuals charged with being delinquent in making child-support payments.

The operation involved more than 39 Sheriff's Officers, operating in teams, who served outstanding warrants and made arrests. A total of 58 men and women who owe a combined total of more than $1 million in child support were arrested.

Michael Phillips of Franklin, who was arrested on a Somerset County child support warrant, also was charged with possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana. Jamal Zubairu and Carl Odums, both of Franklin, also were charged with possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana. Carl Odums also had additional warrants for contempt of court out of Hillsborough Municipal Court and failure to appear out of North Brunswick Municipal Court. Vanessa Aiello of Clinton was arrested, after a foot pursuit, on a Somerset County Prosecutor’s warrant for a failure to appear in Drug Court out of Somerset County Superior Court.

“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 them to uphold their obligations or face incarceration. It creates a compounding effect of payments that lasts weeks after the roundup.”
