When a person is charged with certain crimes, the law allows for the state of Arizona to seize the possessions of that person, especially possessions that are related to the crime. For example, if a person is caught transporting illegal drugs, the state can take possession of the vehicle that was involved. Other possessions that can be seized include homes, property, firearms and money. The government is actually allowed to sell these possessions through a public auction if they remain unclaimed after a certain period of time.
In order to get your possessions back, you need to file a claim to the court. This can be a very tedious process that involves a number of specific procedures and requirements that most people aren’t aware of. It is best to seek legal assistance when attempting to reclaim your property and possessions.
