The Morris County Sheriff’s Office conducted a sting operation that led to the apprehension of a total of 69 suspects. The suspects arrested for failure to pay child support included three women.

Elsewhere in New Jersey, other county police departments are cracking down on people who neglect to make court-ordered child support payments.
