If the motion is sustained, the court shall order a transfer of the original papers including the bail bond, if any, or certified copies thereof, and any cash deposits on the bond made by the defendant to the clerk of the court of the county to which the transfer of the prosecution is made. The court also may order that the bail be continued for the defendant's appearance or that the defendant be held in custody to await his or her transfer to the county to which the prosecution is transferred by a peace officer of that county.
