Toledo police auction brings in $111,950

The Toledo Police Department sold 104 items at its vehicle auction yesterday, raising $111,950.

The public auction was held at the police impound lot, 198 Dura Ave., and drew 453 registered bidders, Officer Kathy Trautman said.

The sale of abandoned vehicles brought in $103,600, which after expenses, will go to the city s general operating fund.

The sale of six forfeited vehicles and a speaker system brought in $8,350 for the police department s law enforcement trust fund.

The highest-selling vehicle was a 2006 Ford Fusion that went for $7,300, and the biggest bargain was a Yamaha ATV that sold for $225, Officer Trautman said.

In addition to the usual cars, pickup trucks, and vans, yesterday s sale also included an air compressor, go-carts, boats, and a motorhome: a 1977 Dodge model that went for $700, Officer Trautman said.

The next auction is being planned for sometime in May, the officer said.
