PCS Bail Bonds (www.PCSBailBonds.com), Fort Worth, Texas’ most trusted bail bond service, is weighing in on why a recent alleged robbery spree by a Fort Worth man has only resulted in a single bail for burglary.
On Monday, January 19, 28-year-old Fort Worth resident James Anderson allegedly went on a robbery spree, beginning in Fort Worth and ending with his arrest in Oklahoma. At least four people have been named as possible victims of Anderson, who was charged with burglary for stealing a vehicle.

“Many people may be confused as to why only one charge has been laid and one bail amount set for someone who is accused of committing multiple crimes,” says Paul Schuder, owner of PCS Bail Bonds. “For someone not familiar with the judicial process, it’s understandable how this can be confusing. It may seem like someone who allegedly went on a robbery spree was only charged with burglary for stealing a car, but there’s more to it than that.”
Schuder explains that although Anderson moved through different cities and even different states, he can not be formally charged with those robbery accusations until he is extradited back to those districts where he allegedly committed those crimes. For instance, he hasn’t been charged for stealing a Dodge Ram yet because he allegedly did that in Fort Worth, but he has been charged with breaking into a car in a casino in Oklahoma.”
”The burglary charge is what the $100,000 bail is primarily based on,” he adds. “A judge cannot make bail decisions based on crimes the defendant has not been charged for.”
“If all these accusations are valid, there will definitely be more charges added to Anderson’s profile,” Schuder concludes. “Car theft and robbery are possible charges that the police will be looking to place once Anderson is back in Forth Worth.”
