The best and quickest way to get a $5,000 bounty is to go to the town of Armadillo and camp in the doctor's office, located on the opposite end of town from the train station. Simply take cover behind the desk and kill anyone and everyone. Once the cops stop spawning you'll need to ride out of town and then go back into town to get them to respawn. This will take about 20-30 minutes to accomplish but be patient and don't rush. Check out my video located at the bottom of this guide for a good visual guide.

It has come to my attention, thanks to a comment by Gamer God87, that sometimes the prompt to turn in your pardon letter will come up without having to press Y. So when you go to turn in your pardon letter, stand there for a moment, if nothing comes up then press Y to get the prompt to come up to press B to turn in your pardon letter.
