  513.610.  Intervention as a party, when — possession of property upon posting bond. — 1.  Any person claiming an interest in the property may become a party to the action at any time prior to judgment, whether named in the petition or not.  Any party claiming a valid interest in the property shall upon motion be allowed by the court to take possession of the property upon posting bond with good and sufficient security in the amount of the property's value conditioned to pay the value of any interest in the property found to be subject to forfeiture or the value of any interest of another not subject to forfeiture.  Such a party taking possession shall not remove the property from the jurisdiction of the court except pursuant to court order.

  2.  The court may, upon such terms and conditions as prescribed by it, order that the property be sold by an innocent party who holds a lien on or security interest in the property at any time during the proceedings.  Any proceeds from such sale over and above the amount necessary to satisfy the lien or security interest shall be paid into court pending final judgment in the forfeiture proceeding.  No such sale shall be ordered, however, unless the obligation upon which the lien or security interest is based is in default.

  3.  Pending final judgment in the forfeiture proceeding, the court may make any other disposition of the property as may be provided by the laws of this state which is in the interest of justice.
