If you are a lover of good things cheap, and the thought of buying something that may have been used in the "perfect crime" appeals to you, then you should definitely be a regular at police seized property auctions.
What are police seized property auctions? Only one of the oddest collection of lost, abandoned, and seized property that you'll ever encounter.
The reason that police seized property auctions exist is because states and the federal government have given law enforcement agencies the power to seize property that was either used in a crime or was bought with money that came from criminal activity.
Drug dealers often drive fancy cars and wear expensive jewelry. Embezzlers often live in big homes and have yachts and airplanes. Once the police prove (or in some states even suspect) that this property is part of an illegal enterprise, they can confiscate it and sell it at a police seized property auctions.
Even thought the government typically pays too much when they are BUYING things, they are not as easy a touch when it comes to selling things. Most police seized property auctions are well organized and some are even conducted by professional auction companies who try to squeeze every penny out of you that they can.
Regardless, you can still get some pretty neat stuff, at reasonable prices, when you attend police seized property auctions. What kind of neat stuff? Cars, boats, planes, houses, real estate, commercial buildings, jewelry, furs, cameras -- the list goes on and on. If it was used in a crime, or bought with money that was used in a crime, then it will probably show up at some police seized property auctions near you.
Police seized property auctions are always advertised in advance. You will usually find them listed in the Public Notices section of the local newspaper that serves the community where the police seized property auctions will be held. The notice will list the date, time, and place that the police seized property auctions will be held at as well as a listing of the seized property that will be auctioned off. DEAauctions.COM gives you direct access to the police department websites to get first hand information on these upcoming events before they are published anywhere. Since the auctions dates and times often change after they have been published, it is a much more reliable information resource than a newspaper.
