    Sec. 1-195. Search warrant; process. Whenever any authorized employee of the Department, sheriff, deputy sheriff, or other peace officer of the State has reason to believe that any person, commercial institution, commission house, restaurant or cafe keeper, or fish dealer possesses any aquatic life or any part of aquatic life contrary to the provisions of this Code, including administrative rules, he or she may file, or cause to be filed, a sworn complaint to that effect before the Circuit Court and procure and execute a search warrant. Upon the execution of the search warrant, the officer executing the search warrant shall make due return of the search warrant to the court issuing the search warrant, together with an inventory of all the aquatic life or any part of aquatic life taken under the search warrant. The Court shall then issue process against the party owning, controlling, or transporting the aquatic life or any part of aquatic life seized, and upon its return shall proceed to determine whether or not the aquatic life was held, possessed, or transported in violation of this Code, including administrative rules. In case of a finding to the effect that it was illegally held, possessed, transported, or sold, a judgment shall be entered against the owner or party found in possession of the aquatic life for the costs of the proceeding and providing for the disposition of the property seized, as provided for by this Code.
