25 in Cape May County charged in child support sweep

The Cape May County Sheriff’s Office recently arrested 25 people on child support warrants in a three-day sweep.

The county sheriff’s office participated in the operation Dec. 9-11 seeking parents who do not have custody and have allegedly failed to pay their court-ordered child support.  Additional targets included parents who have failed to appear at court hearings to establish a child support order or an order for medical support, according to officials.

“Our job in a sweep like this is to attempt to develop background information on possible locations and locate, arrest and bring offenders before the judge,” Sheriff Gary Schaffer said in a prepared statement. “The judge along with probation attempt to satisfy the outstanding financial obligation and other court imposed requirements. I want to commend the warrants unit and ID unit for their hard work in developing intelligence, locating and arresting these individuals and our correctional officers who processed the 15 individuals who went to jail.”

The sheriff’s office served 33 non-support warrants and an additional six people were charged on other outstanding warrants. Officers attempted to locate and serve 63 active warrants. The arrested individuals were brought before the court. The judge ordered money collected and a court-ordered payment schedule. 

Those charged in Cape May Court House included: Scott Goble, 35; Trey Dietrich, 27; Charles Akers, 53; Tarann Wyatt, 24; Victoria Murphy, 31; Samuel Love, 43; and John Snyder, 31.

Charged in Wildwood were Bryan Williams, 23; and Melissa Castner, 32; and Robert MacBride, 35, was apprehended in Wildwood Crest.

Bruce Bethune, 39, was arrested in Whitesboro; Thomas Outlaw, 24, was apprehended in Green Creek. Arrested in Rio Grande were Jesus Rodriguez, 40; Morris Fitzpatrick, 44; Robert Corliss, 23; Daniel Velez, 38; and Clifford Ginyard, 28. Abelardo Fraga, 26, was arrested in Sea Isle City.

Anthony Cardaci, 28; Patrick Dougherty, 26; and Kevin Morford, 36, were arrested in Villas.

Mark Coleman, 42, and Casmir Rupinski, 41, were apprehended in North Cape May. Victoria Bull, 27, was arrested in North Wildwood. Luis Brito, 32, was apprehended in Cumberland County.

The sweep is hosted in cooperation with the state Office of Child Support Services. The Sheriffs’ Association of New Jersey is the lead agency. 

“I continue to ask the public for their assistance in apprehending all our fugitives by going to our website www.cmcsheriff.net, look on our Facecrook page where active warrants are located, then call us with information or use our anonymous tip line and App to pass on information anonymously. The criminal has no greater enemy than the citizen and police working together,” Schaffer said.
