Moorhead Police Auction Off Impounded Vehicles

Police say the auction is needed to clear out seized property

MOORHEAD, Minn. — If you’re looking for a cheap car or bike, there is a unique way you can get one from local law enforcement.

The Moorhead Police Department held a public auction where they sold off cars, bikes, and other items that have been impounded.

People could bid in person or online, and about a hundred cars and bikes were available for purchase.

Police say the auction is needed to clear out seized property.

“It’s a necessity as we gather property, of course we have limited space, and this allows us an opportunity to sell it to our community in an advertised public auction, so it’s a chance for them to buy that property at a very reasonable rate,” said Capt. Tory Jacobson of the Moorhead Police Department.

The police department holds auctions twice a year, once in April and once in September.
