A Lewiston man has been arrested for not paying thousands of dollars in child support. 43-year-old James Bellanceau owes $50,693 in child support payments to his children in Indiana. He was arrested at his apartment in Lewiston. He is wanted in Indiana for felony child non-support. He was taken to the Androscoggin County Jail in Auburn and is likely to face a judge either Friday or Monday. This will begin extradition proceedings to return him to Indiana. Bellanceau has lived in Lewiston since 2007. Officials in Indiana say he has never sent any money back to his four children who live with their mother. Bellanceau surrendered without incident.
