Non-Support Warrant Sweep Results in 38 Arrests

Post Date:11/13/2018

Somerset County Sheriff Frank J. Provenzano has announced 38 arrests resulting from an Oct. 23 to 25 sweep of individuals charged with being delinquent in making child-support payments.

The recent operation involved more than 41 Sheriff's Officers, operating in teams, who served outstanding warrants and made arrests. A total of 38 men and women who owe a combined total of almost $855,000 in child support were arrested.

Brayan Lopez of Plainfield and Jairo Diaz of Bound Brook were arrested on Somerset County child support warrants but were held in the Somerset County Jail on immigration detainers. Also arrested was Ake Brierri of Newark for possession of marijuana under 50 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia; he was charged at Woodbridge Police Department and released with a date to appear in Woodbridge Municipal 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 delinquent parents to uphold their obligations or face incarceration. It creates a compounding effect of payments that lasts weeks after the roundup.”
