To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to North Carolina Public Records Law (G.S. §§ 132-1 through 132-10), I hereby request the following documents:
Copies of all receipts written since 2010 by employees of the Sheriff's Office for cash or property that has been seized from an individual. These receipts are sometimes called cash seizure receipts, civil forfeiture receipts, or property for safekeeping or abandonment receipts. One copy of the receipt is given to the individual whose cash or property has been seized and another copy is kept by the Sheriff's Office.
I also request that all fees be waived as I am a member of the news media -- employed by MuckRock and the Boston Globe -- and intend to use any pertinent information I receive as a result of this request to educate the public.
In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I would request your response within ten (10) business days.
The request has been rejected as being too vague, burdensome or otherwise unprocessable.
