201. Every employee who makes a search without a warrant shall make a report forthwith to a judge having competence to issue a search warrant in the judicial district in which the search was made.
The employee shall, in that case, remit to the judge a declaration, in writing and under oath, in which he states the reasons for which he decided to make a search at such place, the thing searched for therein and, where that is the case, the exigent circumstances which prevented him from applying for a warrant, or the name of the person who consented to the search and the manner in which the consent was given.
Where timber has been seized, the person who made the seizure shall also remit to the judge the minute of the seizure, either on making a report of the search or within 15 days of the seizure, unless the judge grants an extension.
