Ten people turned themselves in Friday to the county Department of Social Services for failing to pay child support, one day after police conducted raids to arrest deadbeat fathers.
Police served 20 arrest warrants in Baltimore City and Baltimore, Cecil and Harford counties Thursday to people who have not made child-support payments.
The raids, organized by the Harford Sheriff's Office, targeted nearly 300 parents, mostly fathers.
The delinquent parents were charged with contempt of court and failure to obey court orders.
News of the raids prompted some delinquent parents to pay up to avoid arrests, said Gloria Davis, supervisor of support enforcement at the Social Services Department.
