Clermont increases nonsupport arrests

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        BATAVIA - Clermont County collected more than $11,000 in past-due child support last month and made twice as many nonsupport arrests as usual.

        The county received 15 calls on its tip line, and the sheriff's office made 49 arrests, more than twice the arrests of a typical month, about 22.

        “We were extremely pleased with the efforts of the sheriff's office,” said Brenda Gilreath, deputy director of the Clermont County Child Support Enforcement Division.

        Of the 49 arrested in August, 22 were profiled as “Most Wanted” on Adelphia Cable's government channel and in local newspapers.

        In all, the county had 40 people on the list before the effort.

        Authorities said the county also suspended the drivers' licenses of 160 child support offenders, who paid $11,221 to have their licenses reinstated.

        The county will continue to run the “Most Wanted” on cable.
