(Oklahoma City) The Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office will auction off items ranging from jewelry to cars in its first online auction on Monday, June 10, 2019. The auction will be hosted via GovDeals.Com and will include more than one hundred items including a 1987 Humvee and a very rare 1952 DIVCO Townley Milk Truck.
The sheriff’s office says the auction will be live on Monday morning at 6 am here.
According to OCSO, items being auctioned come from the agency’s evidence room and sheriff’s surplus. Evidence rooms across the state make efforts to purge unnecessary materials from old or closed cases annually, using standard practices and through court orders. Police agencies do the same with surplus materials that are no longer needed for enforcement purposes or are no longer viable. Oklahoma state statute allows the sheriff’s office to auction such items to the general public.
OCSO said the online auction will help raise funds for public safety, training, and general needs. The Sheriff’s Office will host an online auction each month, until the surplus materials are purged. Each auction will last two weeks and is open to the general public through GovDeals.Com, where a complete listing can be found starting at 6am, Monday, June 10, 2019 at the URL: https://www.govdeals.com/okcountysurplus.
