Title 16, Chapter 7, Section 95 (16-7-95)

(a) All property which is subject to forfeiture pursuant to Code Section 16-13-49 which is, directly or indirectly, used or intended for use in any manner to facilitate a violation of this article or any proceeds derived or realized therefrom shall be considered contraband. Except as provided in subsection (b) of this Code section, such property may be seized and shall be forfeited to the state as provided in Code Section 16-13-49. A property interest shall not be subject to forfeiture under this Code section if the owner of such interest or interest holder establishes any of the provisions of subsection (e) of Code Section 16-13-49.

(b) On application of the seizing law enforcement agency, the superior court may authorize the seizing law enforcement agency to destroy or transfer to any agency of this state or of the United States which can safely store or render harmless any destructive device, explosive, poison gas, or detonator which is subject to forfeiture pursuant to this Code section if the court finds that it is impractical or unsafe for the seizing law enforcement agency to store such destructive device, explosive, poison gas, or detonator. Such application may be made at any time after seizure. Any destruction authorized pursuant to this subsection shall be made in the presence of at least one credible witness or shall be recorded on film, videotape, or other electronic imaging method. Any such film, videotape, or other electronic imaging method shall be admissible as evidence in lieu of such destructive device, explosive, poison gas, or detonator. The court may also direct the seizing agency or an agency to which such destructive device, explosive, poison gas, or detonator is transferred to make a report of the destruction, take samples, or both.

(c) The provisions of subsection (b) of this Code section shall not prohibit an explosive ordnance technician, other law enforcement officer, or fire service personnel from taking action which will render safe an explosive, destructive device, poison gas, or detonator or any object which is suspected of being an explosive, destructive device, poison gas, or detonator without the prior approval of a court when such action is intended to protect lives or property.
