When a fugitive skips court and goes on the run, bail bonds companies are on the hook for the money. Hundreds of thousands of dollars could be on the line, so bondsmen like Jeff Stanley of Bad Boys Bail Bonds hire bail recovery teams to track down their fugitives. Bail recovery teams are often paid a percentage of a fugitive’s bail, but this time there’s an even better reward. On BOUNTY WARS, the team that returns fugitives with the highest bail amounts will earn a $10,000 bonus from bail bondsman Jeff Stanley.
Three teams have five days to recover a long list of fugitives. But before they break down any doors, each team selects their targets. Should they go after easy cases with low rewards, or take a high-risk fugitive with a huge pay-off? With an extra $10,000 on the line, teams with the best strategy could end up ahead of the pack.
