Forfeited property auction to be held Saturday
Numerous vehicles, cell phones, cameras, TV and more to be auctioned
The Department of the Attorney General says a public auction of property forfeited to the State of Hawaii will be held on April 6, in the Pikake room at the Neal S. Blaisdell Center at noon.
The property to be sold includes a 2005 Dodge Magnum R/T Wagon, a 2005 Hyundai Accent 4 Door Sedan, a 2001 Toyota Tacoma Xtra Cab 4x4 Pickup Truck, a 2000 Toyota Tundra Pickup truck, a Honda Dirt Bike, and other vehicles.
Other items include cell phones, cameras, TVs, jewelry, watches and other miscellaneous property.
The property to be sold may be inspected starting at 11 a.m. on the day of the auction. The auction will be conducted by Rosen Auctions. For a list of the property, visit www.rosenauctions.com.
The auction is the result of ongoing efforts by state and county law enforcement agencies to fight crime by seizing and forfeiting assets used or acquired in connection with criminal activities.
Assets that were used in, or obtained from, the commission of certain criminal offenses can be seized and forfeited under the state’s asset forfeiture law. Taking away the tools criminals use to commit crimes and the profits from those crimes are ways to deter and impede criminal conduct. Proceeds from this auction will be used by state and county law enforcement agencies to combat crime.
Employees (and their immediate family members) of county police departments, county prosecuting attorney’s offices, and the Department of the Attorney General are not eligible to purchase forfeited property.
Anyone having information about individuals who are profiting from criminal activity should call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 955-8300.
