"All of the items come out of seized vehicles," Adairsville Police Department Maj. Danny Moore said. "They're not listed as stolen."
Adairsville has not held an auction since the leadership transition when Robert Jones was promoted to chief in September.
"The money [we get] from the auction goes back into the drug fund," Moore said.
According to Moore, the majority of the vehicles to be auctioned are in "road worthy" condition. However, bidders are cautioned that some vehicles may require a tow truck or other form of haul-away.
"We plan to have fun and give people a chance to meet the officers," Moore said.
Tools vary from socket sets to chain saws and weed eaters.
Beginning bids have not been officially set for each item, but, "we need more than $1 for a tool," Moore said.
A possible bid for vehicles could start at $300 and tools will be sold in sets.
Everyone is encouraged to attend, but conditions are in place for anyone employed by the city. No current employee or official of the city of Adairsville may place bids. Also, anyone employed by the APD within the last two years is excluded from participating. Those excluded from bidding also may not receive by transfer any item offered in the auction.
The Lions Club will be selling biscuits and coffee in the square. The auction will open at 8 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 15, and bidding is set to begin at 9 a.m.
All items are sold "as is" and further auction rules will be discussed the day of the sale.
