When you think of internet auctions, you probably think about EBay, not your local police department or sheriff's office, but now, you might.
These aren't auctions selling things like hand cuffs, bullet proof vests, or radar guns.
It's stuff like jewelery, cars, and even designer clothes. You can buy all of them in the "Property Room."
It's a site devoted entirely to stolen, seized, recovered, unclaimed, or surplus items from law enforcement agencies all over the country.
It has a pretty big selection of apparel, photography, tools, cars, and jewelery.
Some things are more expensive than others, but you can find some pretty good deals.
You have to register to use the site, but that's free, and if you can't find what you are looking for at the price you want, come back.
The inventory changes every day as police departments need to get rid of more stuff.
Log on and look for yourself. I've posted the link below.
