Chef given $50,000 Cash Bond Only


PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — A local chef was on bail for failing to register as a sex offender and for drug possession when he drugged and raped a woman on July 11, according to police. Those allegations were made Monday during the arraignment of Aaron Bonds, 43, of 10 Freedom Court, Dover, on three counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault. The felonies allege Bonds gave a woman “an intoxicating substance” before sexually assaulting her three different ways. At the time of the alleged rapes, the woman was “physically helpless to resist,” according to police complaints

Prior to Bonds’ arraignment, prosecutor David Colby said police are awaiting blood test results to determine what substance the woman was given. “The Portsmouth Police Department is investigating other allegations that such a substance had been provided to other females by Bonds,” according to an affidavit by detective Kristen Bernier.

Police say Bonds was convicted in Strafford County on Feb. 6, 2003 for raping an adult woman and was sentenced to three-to-six years in the state prison. Bernier’s affidavit states Bonds is a Tier III sex offender who was arrested on May 16 for failing to register as a sex offender with Dover police and for an unspecified drug charge.

During Bonds’ arraignment, conducted by video from the Rockingham County House of Corrections, prosecutor Rena DiLando said Bonds’ criminal history includes convictions for drug possession, being a habitual offender, failure to appear in court, rape, trespassing and breaking and entering. Citing that history and telling the court Bonds was under investigation for selling drugs, DiLando asked for $50,000 cash-only bail.

“I’m not a threat to the community,” Bonds said, while asking for cash or surety bail. “I’m working every day and I’m not involved in drug sales.” Bonds told the court he was released on personal recognizance following his Dover arrest, “so obviously I’m not a threat to society.”

“I think $50,000 is really absurd,” said Bonds, who told the court he’s a chef for River House. “I understand you’re concerned about the charges and I can’t get into that right now, but I’m not going to jump bail. I want the opportunity to go to work and save money for this case.”

Judge Sawako Gardner set Bonds’ bail at $50,000 cash and said if he is able to post bail, a hearing must be held to determine that the cash came from legal means. Bonds is also ordered to have no contact with the alleged victim and to return to the Portsmouth Circuit Court for a July 25 probable cause hearing.

Basketball Shoe Conceals Handcuff Key

Bounty Hunter’s take note to the new Adidas Tracey McGrady basketball shoe. It has a hidden contraption designed to store a cuff key. The new Tracy McGrady basketball shoes do not have laces. The designed it with a device that just tightens the shoe.
The snap on the back opens up a compartment that holds the special key to tighten and loosen up the shoes. As you can see, a handcuff key can be easily hidden inside the compartment.


Some people don’t deserve a bond

While I am for most people getting the chance to bond out, there are a few exceptions. This is one for sure!! He already had 3 prior convictions of child molestation including one he spent 3.5 years in prison for and now he’s accused of it again and on surveillance tape and facing life in prison and the judge grants him a bond. They are supposed to grant the bond amount on how much of a threat he is to society. All this guy does is molest kids and he’s back out on the streets!! SEX OFFENDER WITH $250,000 BOND GETS ARRAIGNED

Spokane, WA.- A convicted sex offender who recently got out of jail on a $250,000 bond pleaded not guilty today to charges related to an alleged incident with a 5-year-old girl at the NorthTown Mall in Spokane last month.

Richard Michael Payne, 55, faces a potential life sentence if convicted of indecent exposure and two counts of first-degree child molestation after a girl and her 11-year-old sister told their mother he’d exposed himself in an arcade area at the mall June 21 while rubbing the younger girl’s back. The girls’ mother said in an email that the girl’s 19-year-old brother was in the arcade at the time, too. She said the family was vacationing in Spokane.

Police obtained surveillance video of the incident and identified Payne as a suspect through the sex offender registry. He was arrested June 26 and left jail June 27 after posting the bond. Payne is represented by lawyer David Hearrean.

He’s wearing a GPS ankle monitor through the bond company that tracks his movements and is prohibited from contacting children or visiting places where the gather, including the NorthTown Mall.

Payne is a level 3 sex offender who served about 3 1/2 years in prison for grabbing a 9-year-old girl’s crotch and buttocks while at a North Division Street store in 2001. He also has two convictions for fourth-degree assault that stem from child molestation claims, as well as a public indecency in Oregon in 1985 for fondling himself at a Sears store. He has no further criminal history in Washington state.

Payne left the Spokane County Courthouse today without speaking to media. Hearrean has said he’s worried citizens may seek vigilante justice and his client may not get a fair trial.


Proper way to clear a house

For you bounty hunters I would highly suggest learning how to clear houses correctly. I can’t tell you how many times I have had to clear house’s with the Police Dept. Not only will it keep you safe but will get you more respect from the Police. If you know your fugitive is inside hiding, there is a good chance he has a weapon. So get out there and practice…


Old West Bounty Hunter’s

One thing alot of people forget is Bounty Hunter’s have been around since the mid 1800’s. The famous Taylor vs Taintor decision that give’s bounty hunter’s the right to go anywhere without a warrant to apprehend their fugitive was ruled on in 1873. I wanted to pay respect to a famous old west bounty hunter. This guy infiltrated the Butch Cassidy gang. Pretty cool stuff.

Charlie Siringo

A lot of folks have tried to trace the private eye, as we understand it, to the American cowboy myth. While I think it actually goes back further than that, you could certainly make a case if you consider CHARLIE SIRINGO, who billed himself as “The Cowboy Detective.” He’s a fascinating character, a real-life frontier figure who spent more than two decades as The Pinketon Agency’s “Cowboy Detective.”

Charlie Siringo was born on February 7, 1855, in Matagorda County, Texas, the son of an Irish mother and an Italian father. He received some schooing, but by the age of fifteen he was working as a cowboy, mostly in Texas, at first, before eventually becoming a trail driver, and working the Chisolm Trail. In 1884, he quit the cowboy life, settled down and got married, becoming a merchant in Caldwell, Kansas. It was there he began writing his first book, A Texas Cowboy; or, Fifteen Years on the Hurricane Deck of a Spanish Pony. A year later, it was published to much popular acclaim — one of the first real looks at the cowboy life by someone who actually lived it.

In 1886, perhaps bored with the quiet life, Siringo moved to Chicago and joined Pinkerton’s National Detective Agency (using Pat Garrett’s name as a reference) and ending up working for them for over twenty years. He worked cases all over the West, from as far north as Alaska to as far south as Mexico City. In a long and varied career, Siringo chased rustlers and robbers, and went undercover in outlaw gangs and labour unions.

Posing as Charles L. Carter, a gunfighter on the run from a murder charge, he infiltrated Butch Cassidy’s notorious Train Robbers Syndicate, and with the information he gathered, seriously put a crimp in their plans for over a year. A few years later, following the legendary Wilcox train robbery of 1899, Siringo would once again be assigned to tracking down Cassidy’s Wild Bunch, “dogging the Bunch over mountains, deserts, across raging rivers, through blizzards, from Wyoming to Arkansas… he was four years in the saddle… and covered an estimated twenty-five thousand miles.”

BREAKING NEWS: Suspect Wanted In Slaying Of Two California Bounty Hunters

The Bakersfield, California Police Department is searching for the following suspect for two counts of murder: Stephen Michael Stewart, 26. He is described as 6 foot, 2 inches tall, 190 pounds with short brown hair and brown eyes. Police say he has been identified as responsible for the deaths of Brandon and Zachary Sims on April 26 at 7812 Kamloops Drive. After the two men were shot and killed, Stewart and another man were seen fleeing the residence, Stewart in a light blue sedan and the other man on foot, police said. The man who ran from the residence has been located. Stewart abandoned the vehicle and is still outstanding, police said. Stewart is considered to be armed and dangerous, according to police.

The suspect was identified as 26-year-old Stephen Michael Stewart. Police said he and another man were seen fleeing the residence Thursday evening, Stewart in a light blue Buick sedan and the other man on foot, police said. The man who ran from the residence was taken into in custody and identified by police as Zachary Adam Perrick. Bakersfield police Sgt. Mary DeGeare said Perrick lived at the Kamloops Drive residence, and was arrested Friday morning on two warrants. His booking information shows the warrants were for drug possession. It appears the bail bondsmen were at the residence to find Perrick. It’s unclear if they were also looking for Stewart.The shooting victims were Zachary Daniel Sims, 23, and his older brother Brandon Nicholas Sims, 26. Both worked for Bad Dog Bail Bonds and were staking out the house in search of men who the company had bailed out on a charge of possession of controlled substance paraphernalia, a woman who answered the phone at the agency said Friday morning.

Brandon had worked for the company for about four years. Zachary had just left the military about a month and a half ago, the agency said.The Sims were the sons of the owner of Bad Dog Bail Bonds, the woman at the business said. A man who answered a phone number associated with the Sims’ father, Vincent Sims, declined to comment, saying, “I am sorry.?I can’t do this today.” Officers who raced to the scene following reports of gunshots at 6:40 p.m. Thursday found one of the brothers dead in the front yard with several gunshot wounds. The other brother was in a hallway of the house; police said he also appeared to have been shot multiple times.

Neighbors described a disturbing scene. Jose Saenz was next door changing brake pads Thursday evening when he heard what sounded like firecrackers.He ran a few doors over and saw a car backing out of a garage so quickly that its top scraped the still ascending garage door. The car then sped rapidly down the 7800 block of Kamloops Drive. Saenz, curious as to what happened, quickly discovered the noises he’d heard weren’t firecrackers going off. They were gunshots. Saenz saw a man dead on the ground with an apparent bullet wound in the head, he said Friday morning. A short while later police swarmed the neighborhood.The suspect, Stewart, abandoned the Buick in the 6700 block of Klamath Way and hadn’t been found as of Friday afternoon police said. Witnesses reported seeing a male driver get out of the car and run.

Stewart is described by police as 6 foot 2 inches tall, 190 pounds, with short brown hair and brown eyes. Perrick, 24, the man in custody, failed to appear for a court hearing April 9, according to Kern County Superior Court records. In that case, he pleaded guilty to drug possession. A charge of drug possession while armed with a loaded gun was dismissed. Ollie Hoss said nothing like the shootings has happened in the many years he’s lived in the area. He said it’s a quiet neighborhood where the worst that happened before Thursday was a few burglaries over the years. Hoss said he has no intention of leaving the neighborhood, and he feels safe. The 76-year-old takes precautions. “I always have a loaded gun around,” Hoss said. He said he couldn’t imagine what the Sims family must be going through. “If my two grandsons got shot that would destroy me,” he said.

The California Bail Agents Association issued a news release Friday expressing sadness at the death of the brothers. “These young men paid the ultimate price while seeking justice for a crime victim — by trying to ensure that a defendant showed up to stand trial in court,” said CBAA president Vera Roble Dewitt in the release. “Unfortunately, this noble endeavor had a very tragic ending. “We stand with the Sims family and bail agents around the state in supporting local law enforcement around the state to bring Brandon and Zachary’s murderer or murderers to justice.”
