ORDER FINDING NO THIRD PARTY INTERESTS
On July 21, 2008, this Court entered an Order for forfeiture against Defendant Lewis Johnson, Jr., for the following property which had been seized from him:
One Keltec, model P-11 semiautomatic pistol, bearing serial number 31431.
The Court's Order provided that the government would provide an opportunity for persons to claim a legal interest in the property pursuant to 21 U.S.C. § 853(n)(1). Notice was published on an official government website, www.forfeiture.gov, for 30 consecutive days beginning September 26, 2008, and ending October 25, 2008. No third party filed a petition within 30 days after the last date of this publication to allege an interest in the property.
Consequently, the Court finds, pursuant to 21 U.S.C. § 853(n)(7), that no third-party petitions were filed and that the United States of America has clear title to the above-described property. The Vault Custodian for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives shall dispose of the property according to law.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
