Four Saratoga County men were arrested early Thursday for failing to pay child support as part of a sweep targeting 12 scofflaws around the county, police said.
The four owed a total of over $35,000 in child support, and were arrested based on warrants issued in Saratoga County Family Court. Police did not say whether they faced criminal charges or civil charges in Family Court.
According to the Saratoga County Sheriff's Office, arrested were:
* Joshua L. Tucker, of Castle Road, Moreau.
* Ricky P. Allen Jr., of Main Street, Corinth.
* Gerald C. Lawrence Jr., of Lewis Road, Ballston Spa.
* Derrel E. Coppage, of Brookline Road, Ballston Spa.
All four were arraigned in Family Court, and all but Coppage were sent to Saratoga County Jail for lack of bail.
Police are seeking 8 more for whom warrants have been issued.
Saratoga County Sheriff Michael Zurlo has assigned two deputies full-time to Family Court.
