§38-7-10. Execution of plaintiff's bond after order of attachment
If the plaintiff has sued out an order of attachment without
giving the bond mentioned in section eight of this article, and
afterwards gives the same as aforesaid, it shall be the duty of
the clerk, whether the attachment has been levied or not, to
certify the fact that such bond has been given to the officer who
levied the same, or in whose hands it was to be levied, or if he
be absent or out of office, to issue a new order of attachment
and to place the same in the hands of some other proper officer;
and it shall be the duty of any such officer to take the attached
personal property into his possession and make return of such
order in like manner as if such bond had been given before the
issuing of the original attachment.
