I remember when they used to have the police recovered property auctions. The bikes were the main attraction.
Have they stopped having those auctions?
Yes, around 2013 or so. Now, I think the CPD uses this website called propertyroom.com, which I will not even dignify with a link. The web is full of complaints about them. You can't even identify where the items are from. Also, they charge outrageous amounts for shipping -- for example, they classify a typical bike as being 125 pounds for shipping purposes. At the end of the day, I'm sure the CPD gets very little back from them. It's too bad. The auctions were fun and the auction company involved had been doing them for about 50 years. Also, I wonder how many of those nice bikes never quite make it to the online auction.
