LIVINGSTON — In April, Onalaska Police Department and the Alabama Coushatta Tribal Police Department participated in a massive warrant roundup of child support evaders with the Polk County Sheriff's Office and the Texas Attorney General's Office. This week another arrest was made by Onalaska Police and Tribal Police are continuing to pursue leads for two outstanding warrants. Onalaska Police Chief Ron Gilbert said Derek Anthony Holley, 52, was arrested at his residence Monday without incident. "This is the second time I have arrested him on a child support warrant," Gilbert said. He is being held at the Polk County Jail without bond pending transfer to Brazoria County. Captain William Jerry of the Alabama-Coushatta Tribal Police Dept. said he and his officers are continuing to follow up leads and will continue to pursue Eric K. Poncho, 33, a Native American male and Courtney Jermaine Binford, 28, a black male, who have outstanding warrants for unpaid child support. "We are actively pursuing these two subjects and we will not stop until they have taken care of these warrants," Jerry said. The Child Support Enforcement Office that serves Polk County and the surrounding five counties has collected $47 million in the state fiscal year ended August 31, 2012.
