§ 4246. Maintenance
Law enforcement agencies seizing property under this subchapter shall ensure that the property is properly maintained. Equipment and conveyances seized shall be removed to an appropriate place for storage. Any monies, negotiable instruments, or securities seized shall if practicable be deposited in an interest-bearing account pending final disposition by the court unless the seizing agency determines the properties to be of an evidentiary nature and provides for their security in another manner. Any such deposit in an interest-bearing account shall only be accomplished pursuant to a court order directing the same, and the court shall have jurisdiction to enter such order or any other order directing interim disposition of the properties pending final disposition by the court.
