HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Failure to pay child support may not seem like a serious crime, but when considering the children who depend on it, the state of South Carolina takes it very seriously.
According to the Horry County Sheriff's Office, as soon as someone falls behind on three payments, the Department of Social Services turns their case over to law enforcement.
Two offenders in debt of more than $5,000 landed their mug shots in our weekly Horry County's Most Wanted series, with hopes that a tip to their location might bring them to justice.
