I don't see too many people putting a lot of work for a $15,000 bond and I don't see LEO agencies wasting man power looking for a guy that got arrested just for possession of drugs. There are thousands of active warrants throughout the country where LEO agencies won't extradite wanted felons back to the state where the warrant was issued.

They make it seem this guy was the only man possible to find this guy..............I say no one wanted to waste their time.

Unfortunately even with some $5000 skips, you have compay owners traveling to the ends of the Earth searching for their defendant. I get calls sometimes asking what I would charge to pick up a $5000 skip in Miami and drive him half way up the east coast (I charge $3,000 minimum + pay car rental, Just to drive to the border of Florida) ..when I tell them it's going to be cheaper to pay the bond. Cause my fee will be much more than $5000. But these small bond forfeitures for some small Bail Bond Businesses could mean the end of the line for their business.

There's a lesson to be learned from this article. Most of the people on the run aren't very smart and are almost always with a girlfriend/boyfriend or family member.

Well said Mr. Williams. I think he did a great job! Kudos to those that have no quit!

I would also give the guy a high five.... he did what had to be done and followed the leads to the end of the rainbow...

Anyone can probably take the short course and pass the DCJS test... pay the money and hang the shingle... but the proof in the pudding is how you get the job done...

I know of only a hand full of actual recovery agents that are truly real.. most just get lucky and do not do much in the way of investigative work... they usually fall by the wayside rather quickly...

B Williams and S MacLean are two that I know for a fact... and have worked with over the years... who get the job done with very little fanfar...

There are also several others but I won't name them just now... Bill and Scott commented on this thread which is why I mentioned their professionalism.


Bounty hunting/fugitive recovery is not a TV show... it is tedious, hard, long hours work that requires much more than a gun or a badge or a bullet proof vest... it requires more than most are willing to put forth which is why most end up leaving the business in a very short time....


One other thought... I often do my own recoveries because I frankly, do not trust most of those in the recovery business.... if I can't give my case to one of the few I trust... I just do it myself... I'm not a bounty hunter by any means but I have been lucky enough to be able to talk most back into my custody over the years....

For a $15,000 bond I am not going across country to look a for a guy. I don't care how much praise I get it is not worth the time and funds. I am sure he spent a lot more money looking for this guy than he made finding him. That is not smart business tactics in my book.

I know another recovery agent that's headed to the jail to make a deposit... I'll leave it at that. No details...I will give his initials though... Bill Marx! Good job guys!

has not a thing to do with "praise" has to do with principle and keeping the doors of a business open. Not everyone can be well off enough to hand 15K to the Court. Most businesses are more than one person . . . close the doors and you not only affect yourself you affect another (or more) family. Why do people not grasp that ?
My Boss employees (has writing for him) 60 Agents. IF just ONE screws the pooch and causes the doors to be closed we ALL lose. I write well for where I live and yet I do NOT WRITE STUPID . . . and Oh yeah . . . I would be taking a road trip for 15K as 1/2 would come out of my pocket . . . I do not write well enough to hand 7500 to anyone for nothing in return.
Speezack . . . I am like you . . . I only deal with the folks that I know are true . . .

I know very few (actually none) people that do this for praise. In fact there are a lot of good people, doing very good things in this business that no one hears about.

I know a lot of folks that would step up and help a fellow bondsman/ recovery agent. Fifteen grand runs to California? Yeah, many would be all over him and not looking for praise. I know a guy that went to Detroit to pick up a 500.00 skip. Cost him more to pick him up than it would if he'd just paid the forfeiture... Sometimes it's just a matter of principle... Good point Karma!
