PITT COUNTY -

The Pitt County Sheriff's Office announced Tuesday that the third year of "Operation Support Your Child" campaign was another success.

Officials said they established 50 new child support cases and issued more than 400 papers ordering court appearances.

In addition, 62 people were arrested for failure to comply, the Pitt County Sheriff's Office said.

"Our numbers have decreased within the past three years because of the campaign we do each year successfully," said Deputy Eric Todd.

The operation began on Mother's Day and ended on Father's Day.
