Full text
131. Where the thing seized presents a serious danger to human health or safety or to the safety of property, a judge may, on the application of the custodian, authorize the destruction of the thing.
Prior notice of not less than one clear day of the application must be served on the person from whom the thing was seized and on the persons who claim to have a right in the thing.
Where the danger is imminent, the custodian may destroy the thing without authorization from a judge, but he shall promptly report the destruction to a judge and notify it to the person from whom the thing was seized and, if known, the persons who may have had rights therein.
