Section 6-6-262

Execution, garnishment, or other process on bond.

If the unsuccessful party, who has given bond and taken the property into possession fails, for 30 days after the judgment, to deliver the property and to pay the damages assessed for the detention thereof and the costs, the sheriff must, upon the bond, make return of the fact of such failure; and, thereupon, the bond has the force and effect of a judgment on which execution, garnishment, or other process may issue against any, or all, the obligors therein for the alternative value of the property as assessed by the jury and the damages assessed for its detention and the costs. If the property is delivered and the damages assessed for its detention and the costs are not paid, the sheriff must, upon the bond, make return of the fact, and execution, garnishment, or other process must issue against any or all of the obligors for such damages and costs, or for either, as either may be unpaid.
