Joseph Stroup

CAPTURED: Joseph Stroup

Joseph Stroup had been a fugitive for nearly 20 years. He owes more than $560,000 in child support. He was recently located in Calgary, Canada, based on a tip from a Canadian national who identified the fugitive on the HHS OIG Child Support Enforcement website. Stroup, who had been living in Canada under an assumed identity, was detained by the Canadian Border Services Agency and transported to the United States on February 15, 2018. He is currently in U.S. custody and will stand trial for his child support violation.

In August 1989, Stroup was ordered to pay child support for his four children in the amount of $100 per month. However, as a result of telling the court he was unemployed and medically disabled, his support was reduced to $14 per month. In 1996, the court learned that Stroup was operating a successful Internet business, which he ultimately sold for more than $2 million. The child support order was subsequently modified to account for the unreported income. From June 1996 to present, Stroup failed to pay any further child support. An arrest warrant was issued in July 1998.
