When a sheriff, high bailiff, or other officer having for service an extent issued against a delinquent collector of taxes, distrains any class of property which may by law be attached on mesne process by lodging a copy in the town clerk's office, such officer may lodge a copy of such extent, with a list of the property so distrained indorsed thereon with his or her return, in the town clerk's office of the town in which such property is situated.

Within 48 hours after lodging such copy in the town clerk's office, such officer shall deliver to such delinquent collector or leave at his or her last and usual place of abode in this State, a like true and attested copy of such extent, with a list of the property distrained indorsed thereon, as is required in the like service of writs of attachment.
