The Bucks County Sheriff says dozens of wanted men and women have been caught, thanks to "Operation: Friday the Thirteenth."

Sheriff Edward Donnelly discussed the operation Friday.

Donnelly said early Friday morning that officials served ninety warrants to people throughout Bucks County.

The operation involved officials from several areas, including Bucks, Montgomery and Chester counties.

The warrants were mostly for failing to appear on criminal charges or failing to pay child support.

Of those ninety, the sheriff said, 36 people were caught, and another eleven turned themselves in to police.

Donnelly says the people arrested on the domestic-related warrants owed more than $240,000 in child support.
