Vehicles, electronics on the block at drug task force auction
About 70 vehicles and 80 other items will be on the auction block on Memorial Day during the York County Drug Task Force's annual spring auction.
Vehicles include two BMWs, a Volvo XC90, a Lexus GS300, a Buick Enclave and two motorcycles, according to a news release from Kyle King, spokesman for the York County District Attorney's Office. The task force is run by the DA's office.
Smaller items up for bid include televisions, electronic components and tablets, video-gaming systems, speakers and several pieces of jewelry, according to King.
The majority of the auction items were seized from alleged drug dealers by the York County Drug Task Force under zero-tolerance drug-forfeiture laws.
Money raised from the auction is used to fund the day-to-day operations of the drug task force and also to fight addiction, officials have said.
Where and when: The auction starts at 10 a.m. Monday at Schaad Detective Agency, 1114 Roosevelt Ave. in York City, but vehicles are ready to be looked at any time, according to King.
Vehicles are sold as is, with no warranties or guarantees, he said.
Successful bidders must be able to leave a $500 cash deposit for each vehicle won, King said, and the balance must be paid off in seven days. Personal checks will not be accepted.
Title, tag and notary services will be available at the auction.
Miscellaneous items will be cash and carry.
