(a) If the laws of a state in which an article of forfeited property is located prohibit the sale of such property or if the U.S. Marshals Service is of the opinion that it would be more advantageous to sell the forfeited property in another district, the property may be moved to and sold in such other district as the U.S. Marshals Service may direct.
(b) If, after the administrative forfeiture of property is completed, it appears that the proceeds of sale will not be sufficient to pay the costs of sale or the proceeds will be insignificant in relation to the expenses involved in the forfeiture, the U.S. Marshals Service may order the destruction of the property. Similarly, property forfeited under a decree of a court may be destroyed in accordance with section 611, Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1611 ). Also, if the sale or use of any article is prohibited under any law of the United States or the state where it is stored, the U.S. Marshals Service may order it destroyed or cause alteration of the property into an article that is not prohibited.
(c) If arms and munitions are forfeited pursuant to 22 U.S.C. 401(c), the Secretary of Defense should be contacted to determine if he desires this property.
