29 vehicles up for grabs at sheriff’s auction
Out of the 29 vehicles, 16 are high-mileage vehicles, including Dodge Chargers and Ford Crown Victorias, used by the Sheriff’s Office. The other vehicles were seized by the Sheriff’s Office and also have high mileage.
One of the highlights of the seized vehicles includes a 2002 Ford Taurus with just 91,744 miles. The car has much lower mileage than many of the other vehicles available, such as a 2002 BMW 325 with 186,203 miles.
Most of the vehicles are in working condition, while a few can only be used for parts.
The auction will be held on Saturday, April 12 at the Fleet Maintenance Facility in Killona, located at 5065 Hwy. 3127 (Lot B).
The event gets underway at 10 a.m., but anyone interested in taking a look at the vehicles up for bid may do so on Friday, April 11 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.
More than 35 people usually register for the auction, according to Chief Civil Deputy Maisy Robicheaux. She added that some of the high-mileage Sheriff’s Office vehicles have gone for around $300 in the past.
All items can be purchased with cash or cashier’s checks. No personal or company checks without a bank letter of guarantee valid for 15 days after the auction will be accepted.
