         (3)   If, on an application under subregulation (2), a Magistrate is satisfied by information on oath or affirmation that there are reasonable grounds for believing that:

                (a)    such property as is referred to in the information is to be found in the premises or place; and

               (b)    the issue of a warrant is reasonably required for the recovery of that property;

the Magistrate may grant a warrant authorizing the Commissioner, with such assistance as he or she thinks appropriate and if necessary by force, to enter and search the premises or place during such hours of the day or night as the warrant specifies or, if the warrant so specifies, at any time, for the purpose referred to in subregulation (2) and to seize any such property that he or she may find in the premises or place.

         (4)   In this regulation:

Note   See, for example, the Proceeds of Crime Act 1987.

         (3)   However, if the Commissioner is satisfied that the person entitled to possession of the property cannot be located or does not want the property, the Commissioner may direct that the property (unless it is liquid property within the meaning of subregulation 29 (8)) be disposed of in accordance with subregulation 30 (2), (3) or (4), as appropriate.
