Santa Ana Police Arrest Serial Shoplifter

February 1, 2017 Comments Off on Santa Ana Police Arrest Serial Shoplifter posted by: Bail Expert
 

A representative from the Santa Ana Police Department have confirmed they’ve arrested a man who they believe is a serial shoplifter.

Authorities say the man, who has been identified as 29-year-old Hector Ibarra, is believed to have stolen items from a number of stores since spring of last year.  The now-defendant was arrested in Santa Ana and he was taken to the Santa Ana Jail for booking.

Police say they believe Ibarra traded the stolen goods for drugs.  They say Ibarra is believed to have stolen from more than a half dozen stores throughout Orange County.  The suspect was taken into custody in mid-January, when police executed a search warrant at his home.

Police said they also found stolen goods, methamphetamine and heroin at the time the warrant was executed.

Anyone who believes they have information that could help aid in the prosecution of this case is asked to contact the Santa Ana Police.

How Long Does it Take for a Defendant to be Released From Jail?

December 7, 2016 Comments Off on How Long Does it Take for a Defendant to be Released From Jail? posted by: Bail Expert
 

Our friend was arrested a few hours ago and we’re trying to get him out of jail right away.  He’s supposed to start a job later tonight and we don’t want him to miss work.  How fast can a bondsman get him out?

The process of getting someone out of the Santa Ana Jail is not fast, and any Orange County bail bonds company that says they can get your friend released immediately is telling tall tales.  When your friend arrives at the jail he’ll need to be booked into the system; this usually takes between 4 and 6 hours. After he’s booked, and the bail bond is posted, it takes another few hours for the jail to process the release paperwork.  On average, most defendants find they are in police custody anywhere from 6 to 12 hours from the time they are arrested until the time they are released.  For more information on how bail bonds in Santa Ana work call our office now at 888-224-5266.

How Can I Get A Message To An Santa Ana Inmate?

November 14, 2016 Comments Off on How Can I Get A Message To An Santa Ana Inmate? posted by: Bail Expert
 

My roommate was arrested a few hours ago and we’re currently working with a bail bondsman to get him out.  He tried to call a couple of times, but we didn’t realize he was the one who was calling (the caller ID came up with a weird area code).  Is it possible for us to get a message to him?  Can the Santa Ana bondsman do that for us?

Unfortunately, the only way to get a message to an inmate is for the inmate to call you directly. The jailer will not relay messages and they do not allow attorneys, clergymen or bail bonds companies to pass messages to detainees.  The only other way to get a message to an inmate at one of the California jails would be to schedule an in-person visit, however, this often delays the bail bonds process by many hours, which is why scheduling in-person visits during the bail bonds process is not advised.

What’s The Real Cost Of Bail Bonds In Santa Ana?

September 23, 2016 Comments Off on What’s The Real Cost Of Bail Bonds In Santa Ana? posted by: Bail Expert
 

My girlfriend was arrested and her bail was set at $10,000. I can afford to pay the $1,000 fee but I wanted to make sure there aren’t any hidden costs.  Is this all I’ll need to pay or are there other fees that I should know about before I go in and sign paperwork?

You’re correct. In California the cost to purchase bail bonds is 10%, so in this case, $1,000.  As long as your girlfriend goes to court and finishes her case, you won’t need to pay any additional money or fees to the bondsman.  You should also know that the court system is completely different from the bail bonds system, so if the judge rules she needs to pay fines or penalties, that would be separate from the fee that you pay to the Santa Ana bail bondsman.   If you need help getting someone out of the Santa Ana Jail we can help.  Call us now at 888-224-5266 to speak with a licensed bondsman in your area.

Can I Put Up 10% With The Santa Ana Jail Instead Of Hiring A Bondsman?

August 7, 2016 Comments Off on Can I Put Up 10% With The Santa Ana Jail Instead Of Hiring A Bondsman? posted by: Bail Expert
 

My boyfriend was arrested a couple hours ago and his bail bonds have been set at $10,000.  When my friend was arrested back East earlier this year, his family was allowed to put up the 10% with the jail, which they got mostly back once the case was over.  I have the $1,000- can I just put that up with the jail instead of paying a bondsman, since that fee isn’t refundable?

Unfortunately that’s not how things work in California.  Bail law differs state by state and while some states allow for a “cash deposit with the jail” option, California is not one of them.  Here, the two fastest was to get someone out of jail is to either A) put up the defendant’s full bail amount with the jail in cash (in this case, $10,000), which is called “cash bail” or to hire a bondsman and pay a 10% non-refundable fee.  Since most people don’t have the means to come up with full cash bail, the most common way defendants are released from the Santa Ana Jail involves hiring a local bondsman.

Will The Jail Take Santa Ana Bail Bonds Over The Weekend?

July 7, 2016 Comments Off on Will The Jail Take Santa Ana Bail Bonds Over The Weekend? posted by: Bail Expert
 

My boyfriend was arrested while he was visiting Orange County and he’s being held at the Santa Ana Jail.  I’ve heard that you can’t post bail bond for someone over the weekend.  Is that true?  Will he really be stuck in jail until Monday?

Although we’re not sure where you got that information, we can tell you it is absolutely false.  Santa Ana bail bonds can be posted 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, weekends and holidays included.  The only way your boyfriend would be prohibited from posting bail bonds is if has a probation hold or a parole hold.  The only person who has the authority to release these types of holds is a judge.  If you need help with Santa Ana bail bonds or if you have further questions about how Orange County bail bonds work call our office now at 888-224-5266 to speak with a licensed agent in your area.

Santa Ana Police Arrest Parolee On Weapons Charges

June 9, 2016 Comments Off on Santa Ana Police Arrest Parolee On Weapons Charges posted by: Bail Expert
 

Santa Ana Police Department officials have confirmed that they’ve arrested a 21 year-old parolee on weapons charges after a recent standoff.

Authorities have since identified the man as Victor Ramirez.  Ramierz was booked at the Santa Ana Jail on numerous felony charges, including gang related and weapons offenses.

Sources close to the investigation say that officers first approached the man due to a suspected parole violation.  They later confirmed seeing the now-defendant with a firearm.

The weapon was discovered after officers obtained a search warrant to look inside the residence.

Ramirez has since been transferred to the Orange County Main Jail where he’s being held on a no bail bonds hold.  No bail bonds holds are often assigned to those who are found to be in violation of their probation or parole.  The only person who has the ability to lift this type of hold is a judge.

Can Santa Ana Bail Bonds Be Posted Before The Defendant Sees A Judge?

May 20, 2016 Comments Off on Can Santa Ana Bail Bonds Be Posted Before The Defendant Sees A Judge? posted by: Bail Expert
 

My sister was arrested earlier this afternoon and I have no idea how all of this works. One friend told me my sister will need to see a judge before I can get her out of jail but someone else said that’s not true and that I can hire a bondsman right away. Which is it?

In most cases, you’ll be able to post bail bonds for your sister before she sees a judge.  But there are several exceptions to this rule.  Is your sister on probation or parole?  If she has a probation hold or a parole hold the only person who will have the authority to lift that hold will be a judge.  If she doesn’t have a no-bail hold you’ll be able to hire a bondsman in Santa Ana right away.  The bondsman you’re speaking with will be able to help you understand how bail works and what needs to be done to get your sister out of the Santa Ana jail fast.
