Burke suspect sought

Here's an old idea. the person who posts bail for someone goes to jail if the bonded person flees. Second when you stop them long enought take thier picture, release the picture and keep the criminal.

Arrest Warrants

From the way I read this article he has never been arrested for the outstanding warrants. The probation warrant means he has violated his probation and Burke County is activily pursuing him.
