Northwood police make $7,000 in public auction

The Northwood Police Department raised $7,000 yesterday by auctioning unclaimed and confiscated property, including bicycles, jewelry, and three cars.

The items, some of which dated back 25 years, drew 118 bidders. Everything was sold except a few cheaper objects, Nothwood police Chief Jerry Herman said.

Three bidders drove home with their “new” cars. The department sold an automatic 1996 Chevy Caprice, a standard-shift 1991 Chevy pickup, and a standard-shift 1994 Ford Ranger two-wheel drive.

Most of the auction proceeds go to the department's general fund, but 25 percent helps fund the Wood County Crime Stopper program.
