Just before Father’s Day in Chicago, police went after 75 deadbeat dads that collectively owed over $1 million in back child support, according to CBSLocal.
All geared up to make arrests, the Cook County Sheriff’s Central Warrant Unit went door-to-door looking for the men who hadn’t paid what they owed, some of which had been on the run for years.
“People need to become accountable for their children,” Deputy Sgt. Jennifer Moore said.
They didn’t mess around either, deputies brought dogs and were well armed to ensure that the suspects wouldn’t put up a fight when they were approached.
As of the report from CBS, deputies had made 25 arrests of men owing a combined total of just about $400,000.
