An officer receiving money in a suggestion proceeding shall, within thirty days after receiving it, make return thereof to the court or to the clerk's office of the court in which the judgment is, or, if it was rendered by a justice, to the clerk of the circuit court of the justice's county, and, for failing to do so, he shall be liable as if he had acted under an order of such court. After deducting from such money commissions allowed by law and his necessary expenses and costs, he shall within thirty days pay the net proceeds to the parties entitled thereto, and he and his sureties and their representatives shall be liable therefor in like manner as if the same had been made under a writ of fieri facias or execution.
