An Illinois resident owned the car and was driving. Bounty hunters by profession arrest fugitives from the law for a monetary reweard. All three were charged with possession of marijuana, a first-degree felony. The suspects were enroute to New York.

  1. This story is missing many facts and is twisted to attract as many readers as possible.
    After reviewing the case, our company, CITY Bail Bonds of Los Angeles California posted their $300,000 Ohio bail bond without any collateral. These guys will have their day in Court.
    Questions about bail?

    and to answer Richard’s question,
    hydroponic marijuana is grown all over
    California but whether it was done legally
    in this case is a good question
