80 bicycles to be auctioned off at yearly law enforcement auction
LEWISTON, ID —
Need a new bike? How about some jewelry or a motorcycle? Local law enforcement has what you need and they’re auctioning it off.
Lewiston police auction off unclaimed property yearly, once items have been held for the time state law requires.
This year they’re hosting a joint auction with the Nez Perce County Sheriff’s Office.
They have everything from tool sets, a raft, and around 80 bikes up for grabs.
This opportunity to buy is also a way to give back to local law enforcement.
“Anything that was seized that’s drug-related would go back to the drug seizure fund,” said LPD Lieutenant Jeff Klone. “So either drug prevention or drug arrests or towards the drug team. If it’s just found property or things like that, it goes into the police general fund.”
The auction is Saturday, November 18 starting with a viewing at 9:00a.m. It will be held at LPD’s training center at 2419 16th Avenue.
LPD also has a lost and found Facebook page where you can check for lost or stolen goods that may belong to you.
