ORDER FOR DEFAULT JUDGMENT OF FORFEITURE

RICARDO S. MARTINEZ, Chief District Judge.

THIS MATTER came before the Court on the United States' Request for Entry of a Default Judgment of Forfeiture ("Request"). See Dkt. No. 8. Having reviewed the Request, as well as the other pleadings and papers filed in this case, the Court FINDS a Default Judgment of Forfeiture is appropriately entered because:

• The United States properly served, by direct notice and publication, all potential claimants to the above-captioned $17,360.00 and any accrued interest ("the Defendant Currency") (Declaration of AUSA Michelle Jensen in Support of Request for Entry of Default, Dkt. No. 6-1); • No one has filed a claim to the Defendant Currency or otherwise appeared in this case; and, • On May 8, 2017, the Clerk of Court entered default against all potential claimants to the Defendant Currency (Order of Default, Dkt. No. 7).

NOW, THEREFORE, THE COURT ORDERS the Clerk to enter a Judgment of Forfeiture, as follows:

1. The Defendant Currency is fully and finally forfeited, in its entirety, to the United States pursuant to 21 U.S.C. § 881(a)(6); hereafter, no right, title, or interest in the Defendant Currency shall exist in any other party; and,

2. The United States Marshals Service, and/or its agents and representatives, shall dispose of the Defendant Currency as permitted by governing law.
