55-404.  Proceeds of sale — Disbursement. Except as provided in section 55-405, Idaho Code, the proceeds of said sale shall be applied first to all costs assessed or incurred against the personal property so sold including any storage charges as keepers’ fee and expenses of sale incurred by the sheriff or city police department, and the balance of such proceeds, if any, shall be kept by the sheriff or city police department in a separate fund for a period of one (1) year from the date of sale. Any person claiming title to, or ownership of, such proceeds by reason of ownership of such personal property at the time of sale by the sheriff or city police department shall make written application therefor to the sheriff or city police department. If satisfactory proof of such title or ownership is furnished within one (1) year of the receipt of such proceeds, then the said proceeds shall be delivered to the claimant. If no claim and proof is made before the expiration of one (1) year from the receipt of the proceeds, the same shall be paid by the sheriff to the county treasurer or by the city police department to the city clerk who shall credit the same to the general fund of the county or the city, as the case may be, and no claim therefor shall be thereafter considered.
