33. The owner or possessor of the property seized shall have custody of it. However, where the inspector considers it advisable, the inspector may designate another custodian, or transfer the property seized to other premises for safekeeping purposes. In addition, the custodian shall have custody of the property seized and submitted in evidence, unless the judge to whom it was submitted in evidence decides otherwise.
The property seized shall remain under safekeeping until it is disposed of in accordance with any of sections 34 to 37, 39 and 40 or, if proceedings are instituted, until a judge disposes of the property by judgment.
