Raids by city sheriff target child-support scofflaws

May 09, 2008

The Baltimore Sheriff's Office has apprehended dozens of child-support scofflaws in raids this week that were scheduled to coincide with Mother's Day.

Deputies began the enforcement sweep early Monday morning and plan to continue through today. They have also joined with officials from neighboring counties to identify and pursue parents who are delinquent in their child-support obligations.

As of yesterday afternoon, deputies had taken 83 people into custody as part of "Operation Mother's Day," Sheriff John W. Anderson's office said.

"It is our goal to apprehend suspects wanted for delinquent child support in an effort to provide needed relief to families that may be struggling," Anderson said in a news release.
