Ten behind with child support

Four men from Tarboro

Four Tarboro men, a Pinetops man and a Pinetops woman were among the 10 people arrested Sunday by the Edgecombe County Sheriff's Department during a child support round-up titled "Support Needed – With Parents."

The round-up arrested individuals on active Child Support Order Arrests from Edgecombe, Halifax, Wilson and Nash counties.

From Tarboro, Derrick D. Andrews, 38, of 104 Tiffany Lane, was arrested and placed under a $1,250 cash bond; Thomas R. Marks, 27, of 4836 Hwy 42 East, was arrested and placed under a $250 cash bond; Michael R. Smith, 42, of 1535 Harts Mill Road, was arrested and placed under a $500 cash bond; and Bryon Staton, 34, of 908 E. Saint John St., was arrested and placed under a $2,000 cash bond.

From Pinetops, Dana Baines, 36, of 4 Lilly Pad Lane, was arrested and placed under a $1,500 cash bond and Eddie G. Collie, 38, of RR 1 Box 222V, was arrested and placed under a $2,000 cash bond.

From Rocky Mount, Lazenevou Bastein, 35, of 1000 Tarboro St. was arrested and placed under a $750 cash bond; Lawrence Branch, 40, of 1728 Springfield Road, was arrested and placed under a $1,500 cash bond; Jermaine Brinson, 33, of 404 Archer Drive, was arrested and placed under a $800 cash bond; and Roderick Hines, 38, of 187 Vann Drive, was arrested and placed under a $1,750 cash bond.

Andrews and Hines each had two Child Support Order for Arrests out while Bastein had three.

In most cases, the bond amounts are reflective of the amount that is approximately owed in child support payments, said Edgecombe County Sheriff James Knight.

The Child Support Department of Edgecombe County Social Services could not be reached to find out how much each individual owed in child support payments.

"I would like to thank the officers who participated in this round-up for a job well done," said Knight.

"We also want parents to know that we are trying to help them get that financial support that is needed and owed to their children."
