Father from deadbeat list arrested at airport

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        HEBRON — Another man from Hamilton County's “Most Wanted” list of deadbeat parents is in jail today.

        Robert E. Reed, 47, was arrested last week shortly after his plane landed at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.

        Prosecutors say he had been living in Saudi Arabia and may have traveled to Cincinnati on business.

        The arrest is one of dozens since a grand jury two years ago indicted 65 men and women who owed a total of $1.3 million to their children.

        Mr. Reed, with more than $130,000 in unpaid child support, was ranked near the top of the list.

        Prosecutor Mike Allen said customs officials took Mr. Reed into custody on July 1 after a routine check of his passport and identification.

        Mr. Reed's name caught the eye of customs officials because he was listed in a computerized database run by the National Crime Information Center.

        He is the second man this year from the county's list to be arrested while trying to enter the country.

        The other, Charles Aniagolu, was caught after his plane landed in Atlanta. The former correspondent for the British Broadcasting Company came to the United States for a job interview with CNN.

        Mr. Aniagolu remains in jail pending his trial here next week in Common Pleas Court.

        Mr. Reed is scheduled to appear in court July 18.
