The city has made a deal with PropertyRoom.com, an Internet auction site that partners with municipalities to conduct cybersales on all sorts of seized items. Like eBay, you bid against others online for a specified period of time, with high bid taking the prize. (Unlike eBay, "men's accessories" includes a large selection of knives ... and the "Steal of the Day" may have a double meaning.)
No word yet on when the NOPD schwag will go online (we've got a call in to Mayor Mitch Landrieu's office)*, but a press release says the city will be auctioning off 843 patrol cars, 18 fire trucks, more than 1,500 computers and 2,000 bicycles.
And remember that Bentley that was seized in May from the local bar owner who was delinquent on his sales taxes? That'll be there, too.* EDITED TO ADD: Ryan Berni, a spokesman for Landrieu's office, says NOPD items should start showing up on Property Room "in the next few weeks."
