Beginning in the early morning hours of 11/26/13, deputies assigned to the Court Services Division of the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office partnered with other deputies to serve child support lockup orders issued by the Superior Court of Bulloch County. These lockup orders are issued after individuals ordered to pay child support fail to do so for a significant period of time and accrue large debts.
As of 12 pm, deputies have arrested 8 individuals with a combined $100,000 worth of child support obligations. A further 26 were determined to have moved away and these lockup orders were returned to the court. Deputies will continue searching for several more individuals throughout the next day. All arrested individuals will go before a Superior Court judge tomorrow for a disposition on their cases.
