Texas: McClennan County DA Announces $1 Million in Forfeiture Revenues Since 2010

Waco News Channel 25 (KXXV) reports:

The McLennan County district attorney's office has reached a big milestone.

They've collected over $1 million worth of forfeited assets in less than four years under DA Abel Reyna.

Reyna released the numbers exclusively to News Channel 25 on Tuesday.

He says the contraband collected is from criminal activity like drug sales, gambling and money laundering.  

Reyna says, "Asset forfeiture is essentially attacking the fruit of criminal behavior. It's one thing to go after conduct, it's another to go after the property that's a result of that conduct. And you have to be firm on both ends to combat and fight crime."The forfeited assets are either auctioned off, sold or destroyed.

Reyna says the proceeds are distributed between law enforcement, DA and clerk's offices.

Reyna's haul includes a Dr. Pepper machine, 2 DVD players, 52 DVDs, 4 chrome rims and tires, 2 Sony Playstations and 3 games, a pair of Beats headphones.
