Subject: Civil Division/FCCSEU Roundup 

December 6, 2012 - Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard announces the arrest of sixteen people – including an Akron couple charged with child neglect and a fugitive wanted in Orange County,Florida – as a result of an early morning roundup.

 Deputies from the Family Court Child Support Enforcement Unit, assisted by Patrol and Civil Division personnel, coordinated a Family Court warrant sweep that resulted in the arrest of ten men and three women on charges of neglect, failure to pay child support and paternity, including Shiloh and Jason Ferns of Knapp Rd., Akron.

 In the course of executing the warrants, deputies also arrested two men wanted by Buffalo City Court and one by W. Seneca Court for a variety of Penal and Vehicle & Traffic Law charges, as well as Victor Gonzalez of Eckhert St., a fugitive from Orange County,FL wanted for possession of cocaine with intent to sell.

 All sixteen arrestees were taken to the Holding Center, pending arraignment while Gonzalez awaits extradition.
