Where were you arrested? A DUI is a state offense, but each jurisdiction handles them slightly differently.

How to Pick up Someone's Property or Money from Jail

mobile-phone-money-banknotes-us-dollars.jpegInmates who are booked into the Maricopa County jail may release their property to anyone they choose. An inmate can choose to release the property to a specific person or to anyone who comes down and specifically requests it. Inmates must release all of their property when requesting a property release. It is not possible to release only selected items. The inmate will choose where the property is released. This will usually occur at either 4th Avenue Jail or Lower Buckeye Jail.

The person picking up the property will need to provide a valid government issued picture identification card (ID), such as a Motor Vehicles Department (MVD) identification card/driver's license that is current and valid. An Immigration card (work visa card, or resident alien card) presented with a MVD card is acceptable. Picture ID's made at swap meets, or store ID cards like Sam's Club are not valid ID's.

Prior to the inmates transfer to DOC (Department of Corrections) inmates are encouraged to fill out a DOC RELEASE FORM which allows property items to be released to anyone that comes in and asks for it, or they may list a specific person for it to be released to. If their items are not picked up in 10 days, then the property is sent for destruction.

Inmates can release all the money in an inmate account without approval up to 72-hours after booking. Requests for a money release after 72-hours in custody must be approved by the Jail Commander.
