Tulsa Bounty Hunter Goes From Hunter To Prey - Surrenders
A Tulsa, Oklahoma bounty hunter, Adam McAdoo, was wanted for kidnapping. He has been accused by his victims of approaching them with warrants for their arrest. Rather than bringing them to justice, however, he allegedly told them they had to pay him money or be brought to jail. He would promise the victims that if they paid him the money their bench warrant would be lifted.
If they agreed he would drive them to an ATM to get the money. He would accept the money and let them go thinking their legal troubles were over. When another bounty hunter finally tracked them down they would find themselves not only in jail, but also out a bunch of money.
This, of course, is not how bounty hunters are supposed to work. Bounty hunters track down fugitives and bring them to the police to await trial. They never carry out punishment or collect fines from the fugitive directly.
Adam was being tracked down by other bounty hunters, who will not offer him the opportunity to buy his way out of justice. Other bounty hunters were especially interested in tracking down McAdoo because, they say, he has given them all a bad name by abusing his job.
Adam McAdoo who was on the Tulsa Police's Most Wanted list turned himself in at the Tulsa County jail Wednesday evening.
McAdoo was released from jail, six hours after posting a $125,000 bond.
