San Mateo Bail bonds companies often receive calls from people who have learned that a friend or loved one has been arrested. They absolutely want to help get this person out of jail, they say, but they also want to be sure the defendant wants to be released on bail bonds.
It is not unusual for someone to start the bail bonds process only to put the defendant’s bail bonds on hold, saying they want to speak with this person before they sign any paperwork.
“They were arrested with their cell phone—can’t they just use that to call me?”
The quick answer to this question is “no.” When someone is arrested and booked into the county jail the jailer will take all of their personal possessions, including their wallet, cell phone, jewelry, keys etc. and place those items into a sealed plastic bag. These items will not be returned to the defendant until they are released from custody.
In our experience, most all people who are arrested want friends and family members to help them post bail bonds as quickly as possible. For more information on how to get someone out of jail fast call our office now at 888-224-5266 to speak with a licensed bondsman you can trust.
