ORDER OF FINDING OF NO THIRD-PARTY INTERESTS (FINAL ORDER OF FORFEITURE)
On July 16, 2010, this court entered an order for forfeiture against defendant Antwon Alfred for the following property which had been seized from said defendant:
One Smith and Wesson, Model 60, .38 Special caliber revolver, bearing serial number R23750, and any and all ammunition contained therein. Said order further 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).
The court notes that notice was published by the government on an official government website, www.forfeiture.gov, for 30 consecutive days beginning August 14, 2010, and ending September 12, 2010, and that no third party filed a petition within 30 days after the last date of said publication to allege an interest in the property.
Consequently, the court hereby 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 that is the subject of the Order of Forfeiture filed on July 16, 2010, namely:
One Smith and Wesson, Model 60, .38 Special caliber revolver, bearing serial number R23750, and any and all ammunition contained therein.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives or the United States Marshal shall dispose of the property according to law. Said disposal may, at the discretion of the United States, include the destruction of the property. Said destruction may be done at such time and location and by such persons as designated by the United States Marshal or the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
