HAMILTON COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -- A joint child support warrant operation held Thursday led to the arrest of 32 people for a range of charges from failure to pay child support to drug possession to attempted first degree murder.

The operation, which involved the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office and Chattanooga Police Department fugitive divisions along with support from the Hamilton County 911 Center and HCSO Corrections Division, was considered a "huge success".

HCSO spokeswoman Janice Atkinson said that detectives from both law enforcement agencies made a concentrated effort directed at child support attachments for this endeavor.  

During the operation, detectives located other individuals who had active outstanding warrants other than child support attachments that are included in the total number of arrests made.

The final statistics: 12 child support attachments served, 46 warrants served and 32 arrests made.
