    Sec. 10-10. Upon the issuance of any such search warrant, it shall be the duty of the officers executing the same to forthwith enter the house, building, premises, boat, vehicle, receptacle or other place therein described, either in the day time or night time, by force, if necessary, and to remove therefrom and confiscate any alcoholic liquor manufactured, possessed or kept for sale, contrary to the terms of this Act, and any machinery, equipment or material used in connection therewith, and to hold such property until all prosecution arising out of said search and seizure shall have ended and determined, and it shall be the duty of the officers executing such search warrant to arrest any person or persons found using or in possession or control of such alcoholic liquor, articles or things. All alcoholic liquor unlawfully manufactured, stored, kept, sold or otherwise disposed of, and the containers thereof, and all equipment used or fit for use in the manufacture or production of the same which are found at or about any still or outfit for the unlawful manufacture of alcoholic liquor on unlicensed premises are hereby declared contraband, and no right of property shall be or exist in any person owning, furnishing or possessing any such property, liquor, material or equipment, but all such property, articles and things, including alcoholic liquor, shall be sold upon an order of the court, in the manner hereinbefore provided, and the proceeds thereof shall be disposed of in the manner herein provided for the disposition of license fees paid to the State Commission; provided that nothing shall be construed to prevent any officer whose duty it is to make arrests from arresting, with or without a warrant, any person or persons found violating any of the provisions of this Act; provided further, that any officer executing a search warrant shall forthwith make his return thereof to the court or officer issuing said search warrant of the manner and date of his execution thereof, showing what, if anything, was seized and held by said search, together with the name of the owner or owners, if known, and shall attach to said return an accurate list or inventory of the articles and things so seized.
    It shall be the duty of the officer who has seized and is holding any of the property mentioned in this section, to make application to the court on final determination of any prosecution arising under said search and seizure, and in which such prosecution shall have been commenced or prosecuted for an order to sell such property, and the court, if satisfied that the property so seized and held was, at the time of its seizure, being kept or used, or was fit for use in the unlawful manufacture or production of alcoholic liquor, then the court shall make an order that said property and effects be sold by such officer and shall fix the time, place, manner and notice of such sale, and the proceeds of such sale shall be paid over to the State Commission; provided, however, that nothing contained in this Act shall be considered to authorize the sale of any alcoholic liquor unlawfully manufactured fit for human consumption which comes into the possession of any officer by seizure, confiscation or forfeiture under the provisions of this Act without the payment of all taxes required by the laws of this State and of the United States; provided, further that all such unlawfully manufactured alcoholic liquor which is unfit for human consumption shall be destroyed.
