(WUSA) -- Authorities with the Prince George's County Sheriff's Office say 51 people were arrested after a three-day operation focused on apprehending fathers with active child support warrants. 

Deputies from multiple jurisdictions investigated 286 warrants and searched people at 136 addresses. In total, those arrested owed more than $343,000 in back child support, say authorities.

Officials say it's the highest total of arrests since the Child Support Enforcement Division began the sweep in 2009.
