To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records from the year present (November 7th 2017) to January 2014:

I am looking for a listing for seized assets, for example cars, cash, property, and another other materials that were seized. I am not looking for any Personal Identifying Information, the names of individuals or other personal information. I am only requesting disclosure of the portion of the records that only contains a listing of seized assets.

Additionally, please search Search, Arrest, and Seizure Records as described in the System of Records described http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2008-12-09/html/E8-29055.htm

Please search the "Receipts of cash, goods, or other property seized, detained, or forfeited" the "Description of goods or other property seized, detained, searched, or forfeited", the records "Domestic value of seized goods or other property" and "Reports of arrests, searches, detentions and seizures by ICE including the circumstances of the seizure, including reports from other law enforcement agencies". Finally search the "Section of law violated"

The records may also be stored electronically in SEACATs so search those as well.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, 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 look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Freddy Martinez
