  52.100.  Discharge of sureties — attachment of collector's goods and chattels. — 1.  The sureties on any bond given in pursuance of sections 52.010 to 52.310, or any of them, may, at any time after the execution of the bond, if they have good reason to believe that the collector is about to fail to comply with the conditions thereof, file with the clerk of the county commission a notice, in writing, verified under oath by the person asking to be discharged, setting forth the facts in the case, and asking to be released from any further liability on the bond.  The clerk with whom the notice is filed shall notify the collector to give additional security, equal to the security about to be released by the county commission.  The notice may be served by the clerk, or by any person appointed by the commission or clerk.  If the collector does not appear and give additional security within ten days from the time he is so notified, the county commission may remove him from office.

  2.  If the sureties on any collector's bond, or any of them, are satisfied that the collector is making improper use of the funds collected by him, or has absconded or is about to abscond from this state, whereby the sureties may become liable to pay any sum of money, the surety may sue out a writ of attachment against the goods and chattels of the collector, in the manner that he would be authorized to do if the collector was personally indebted to the surety; and the money collected on the attachment shall be paid into the state, county, town or city treasury, by the officer collecting it as if paid over by the collector.
