The Evidence and Property Section is closed to the public but will continue to accept incoming property and evidence from all agencies submitting to the unit.

Evidence staff will be both teleworking and in the office on an intermittent basis as needed to process incoming evidence.

Planned evidence intake will be done twice per week, more frequently depending on incoming volume.

Evidence staff may be reached by phone M-F from 9a-4p by calling 512.754.2280. Voicemails may be left and your call will be returned as soon as possible. Evidence staff may also be reached by email during this time at tengler@sanmarcostx.gov or ddrake@sanmarcostx.gov.

Routine property returns have been suspended until April 16, at which time the situation will be reevaluated and a decision will be reached as to whether the suspension will be continued.

For individuals who previously received a letter from evidence staff advising that they had 90 days to pick up their property before the item was disposed, there will be an extension. All items for which the 90-day limit would affect will receive an extension of an additional 90 days, which will go into effect once the suspension on returns has ended.
