Someone who is arrested and charged with a crime then let out pending trial is not generally allowed to leave the State or Country while out on bail. If someone is a "flight risk" then sometimes the court will request that they turn in their passport.
Check with the prosecutor in the matter. Let him or her know what you think is happening. He or she can take care of it. They will revoke bail, have him picked up, etc.
