If you are an offender of a crime in which property was seized, you will need a Court order stating the specific property in question can be returned to you. If you want the property to be released to another person, the Court order must name that person. Information regarding obtaining Court orders can be found by contacting the Court of jurisdiction. You may also have an authorized representative make a claim for the property. Your representative must have a notarized letter from you, the owner of the property, identifying the individual whom you are authorizing to act as your representative and identifying the specific property to be claimed.
If you are a victim of a crime and your property was recovered; all aspects of the case must be completed within the Court system before the property will be returned. If the property was seized pursuant to a search warrant, you will need a Court order stating the specific property in question can be returned.
