Virginia is using cell phones to track down parents that owe child support payments.
The commonwealth is among the first states to subpoena cell phone records to help locate some of the 268,000 people who aren't paying the child support they owe.
Officials say that these parents owe more than $2 billion to 480,000 Virginia children. Officials have obtained more than 52,000 active cell phone numbers from seven of the largest cell phone providers as a result of the program.
