A two-week operation recently resulted in the elimination of 21 deadbeat parent warrants, according to the Lake County Sheriff's Office. The operation began with 50 deadbeat parent warrants. As a result of the research conducted by the sheriff's office warrants division and Lake County State's Attorney's Office Child Support Enforcement Division, five Lake County wanted subjects and five out-of-county wanted subjects were arrested. It was determined five Lake County warrants had been quashed and five other Lake County warrants involved subjects who were in custody at other correctional facilities. While serving a deadbeat parent warrant, officials arrested one additional subject on an outstanding warrant for a traffic offense. "Those that refuse to take care of their families and follow court orders to do so need to understand that these obligations will not go away," Lake County State's Attorney Michael G. Nerheim said.
