Skipping court? Officers, bondsmen are on the hunt
WRAL-TV
Every day, hundreds of people skip court in Wake County, North Carolina, costing taxpayers' hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in lost time, resources and manpower to bring them in. Wake County deputies serve about 2,500 warrants a year, many for those who don't show up to court. But they aren't the only ones tracking down the no-shows. WRAL-TV spent time with the officers and bail bondsmen on the front lines of the sometimes dangerous war to restore order in the courtroom.

When police play bounty hunter
USA Today (commentary)
Ming Ton Liu, a Chinese-born American, was driving to Louisiana last year to buy a restaurant when he was stopped for speeding in Alabama. A sheriff's deputy questioned Liu, searched his car and found $75,195 in cash, which was for a down payment. Liu was ticketed for speeding and held for a few hours. A drug-sniffing dog was brought in. Police said the dog "alerted" after sniffing the money and Liu gave conflicting accounts. But no drugs were found. No charges were filed. Authorities seized the cash anyway.

WNDU-TV
Days of painstaking research, hours of investigation and countless time "staking out" can all play into a fugitive recovery mission. It's the few minutes of visual contact that can build to a high-intensity crescendo for fugitive recovery agents. "It's an adrenaline rush I will say but you have to maintain your calmness, you have to remain level headed," said fugitive recovery agent Curtis Stavedahl. Stavedahl is 1 of 3 agents who took WNDU-TV through a day in the life of a Michiana bounty hunter.

Vonderrit Myers case prompts questions about GPS monitoring
KSDK-TV
The recent death of a young St. Louis man has prompted new questions about GPS monitoring devices on people charged with gun crimes. In June, police arrested 18-year old Vonderrit Myers on a weapons charge. Authorities said he was involved in a high speed chase, fled the scene and tossed a gun into a sewage drain. When caught, police charged him with unlawful use of a weapon and resisting arrest or interfering with an arrest/detention/stop.
