What does this mean: "Bond Cancellation Sent To Surety"?

And why would that happen to someone? And if it's not obvious from your answer to these questions, is this a good thing, or bad thing?

I've got some ideas what this could be about, but I'll need more detail to be sure:

Is this in a criminal case?

Did the Defendant recently do one of the following: a) not show up to Court, b) get sentenced, c) get arrested again? (Please indicate which one)

Where did you see the language "Bond Cancellation Sent to Surety?"

Thanks for the reply. It's a criminal case, where the defendant got arrested. I saw this on the court record search result under the docket information. I assume this person did not show up, as I also see 'defendant absent' on the docket.

Is the Defendant currently in custody?

If so, it means that the bondsman is no longer on the hook.
