Man arrested, owed $94,000 in support
Officials with the Baltimore sheriff's office said yesterday that they arrested a 48-year-old man who owed more than $94,000 in child-support payments to two women - a sum that had accumulated over the past 15 years. Sheriff's deputies arrested Warren Lee Dangerfield on Tuesday morning at a home in the 500 block of S. Decker Ave. in Southeast Baltimore. Dangerfield's arrest was part of an operation that the city sheriff's office launched three months ago to pursue the top 20 child-support violators in Baltimore. Dangerfield owed the second-highest amount among the group, at $94,771.91. He has four children with two women, authorities said. A man identified as Carl Skinner Jr. owes the most, $111,859.65, the sheriff's office said. Since the operation began, the sheriff's office has arrested 11 of the top 20 violators.

Carroll woman indicted in sex scheme
A Westminster woman was indicted yesterday in a traveling teen sex scheme in which she is accused of selling sex with a teenager in Maryland and Virginia. Federal prosecutors say Deborah Frock, 39, accepted $500 from a Westminster man in 2006 to have sex with a 17-year-old girl after photographing her naked. In 2007, prosecutors say, police found images of the girl having sex with the man. According to court documents, Frock accepted $600 from another man in Purcellville, Va., to photograph the teen naked and have sex with her at his house in 2006. Prosecutors say Frock hid the girl Sept. 24, 2006, to keep police from finding her, but she was found a month later. According to prosecutors, Frock also called the Virginia man to seek help in keeping authorities from searching her computer.
