Every now and then Winnipeg Police are organizing a sort of garage sale for the things that were seized by police but never claimed by their lawful owners. Most of them were never reported missing or stolen, so there is no chance for the police to find the owners and return their goods.
Last week, September 30 the Winnipeg Police Service held an Unclaimed Goods Auction on Sunday 2018. The auction was held at Associated Auto Auction, 7130 Roblin Boulevard, Headingley, Manitoba. Viewing began at 9:00 a.m. and the auction started at noon.
The even had a big list of goods, over 500 items, including Honda Odyssey Dune Buggy, an assortment of tools, handgun and rifle cases, over a dozen of vehicles and even the Celestron telescope.

Some locals know about such auctions where you can get a really great price on some items and even get yourself a new car or a van, there were a lot of people who came for the first time, just to take a look and understand how this is working.
So, if you have not attended such events before, we highly recommend to follow the Winnipeg Police department on Facebook and stay informed about future auctions to show up there on time and get a good deal!
