The Quaids' arraignment on charges of burglary, defrauding an innkeeper and conspiracy has been set for Dec. 15.
"They have posted bond," Santa Barbara Senior Deputy District Attorney Lee Carter tells PEOPLE. If they don't show up to court, "a bounty hunter will go and get them," Carter says.
Their bail was set at $20,000 each.
After skipping the four voluntary court appearances – the last of which was supposed to be Monday – an arrest warrant was out for the couple, and the District Attorney's office was proceeding with extraditing the Quaids from Texas to California.
By posting bond, the Quaids can avoid both scenarios. The pair were arrested in Marfa, Texas, on Sept. 24 after allegedly running out on a bill at the exclusive San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara, Calif., last summer.
The Quaids could not be reached for comment.
