MPD Hosts 1st Bicycle Auction of the Year

The Minneapolis Police Department processes tens of thousands of pieces of evidence and unclaimed property every year, including about 2,000 bicycles. Because of the sheer volume of property, the department can’t hold on to everything. So many things are recycled, donated, or auctioned off. We already had our first auction of the year, but there are more to come!

Future Auctions:

April 21 – General

June 9 – Bicycle

August 4 – Bicycle

September 29 – Bicycle

October 6 – General

A list and photos of items being auctioned can be found at www.minnesotaauctions.net.  Click on Police Auctions.

Viewing begins at 4:00 pm. Auctions begin promptly at 6:00 pm.

All auctions are held at:

Minneapolis Police Warehouse
6024 Harriet Ave. S.
(1 block east of Lyndale Ave., near Bachman’s)
