Times might be tough, but you still have to pay child support.

The Atlantic County Sheriff's Department conducted a three day sweep February 2nd - 4th, and arrested 32 people for failure to pay their court-ordered child support payments.

According to Sheriff Frank X. Balles, over $7,500 in back payments were collected from those arrested during the sweep.

Balles said, "Even during tough economic times, it is our duty to the children, the victims, to timely investigate and execute Child Support Warrants issued by the Court."
