— Durham County Sheriff's deputies rounded up dozens of parents this week wanted on charges of failure to pay child support.

Officers arrested 63 people who owed more than $300,000 combined in back child support, authorities said. One man accounted for about half of that amount.

He is being held in the Durham County Jail on a $170,000 bond.
