Where an execution is issued upon a judgment entered against the defendant, the sheriff's
duty with respect to custody and disposition of property or debt levied upon pursuant
to an order of attachment is the same as if he had levied upon it pursuant to the
execution. The priority among two or more orders of attachment against the same defendant shall
be in the order in which they were delivered to the officer who levied upon the property
or debt. The priority between an order of attachment and an execution, or a payment, delivery
or receivership order, is set forth in section 5234.
