When a sheriff, coroner, or other officer, by virtue of an execution, levies upon goods and chattels which afterward remain upon his hands unsold for want of bidders, for the want of time to advertise and sell, or for other reasonable cause, for his own security, he may take of the defendant a bond with security in such sum as he deems sufficient, to the effect that the property shall be delivered to the officer holding an execution for the sale of it at the time and place appointed by such officer, either by notice given in writing to the defendant in execution, or by advertisement published in a newspaper published in the county, naming therein the day and place of sale. If the defendant fails to deliver the goods and chattels at the time and place mentioned in the notice, or to pay to the officer holding the execution the full value of such goods and chattels, or the amount of the debt and costs, the bond shall be considered as broken, and may be proceeded on as in other cases.
