Unclaimed Property Goes On The Auction Block In Windsor

The Windsor Police Service Auction is set for today at the Fogolar Furlan Club where hundreds of unclaimed property will be auctioned off.

Viewing began at 8am while the bidding starts at 9:30am.

Constable Andrew Drouillard says there are some popular items.

"The main sellers there are the bikes, jewellery, things of that nature but there are tools," says Drouillard.

The deals aren't the only attraction.

"It is usually a really fun event for everybody they have food there and with the auctioneer Richard Lavin, he will be there and he usually bring in a lot of energy to these things with that ole auctioneer mentality and talking really fast and people really enjoy watching him too," says Drouillard.

The items being put on the auction block were never claimed.

"It is property that we weren't able to trace back to its rightful owner and people weren't able to identify as property, so unfortunately when we accumulate and we develop a lot of inventory, we have to get rid of the property," says Drouillard.

Proceeds go back to the Windsor Police Service Board and goes into operating expenses and to offer rewards for information about crimes.
