OREM, UT – The Orem Police Department recently held their annual property and bicycle auction, opening up cheap goods to the public while raising funding for the city.
Items on auction ranged from a $2 bucket, a $10 Santa statue, a $150 candy machine, and a $400 set of truck tires. The auction opened with over a hundred small items on sale, and ended with bikes, which the audience seemed most interested in. The 114 bikes on auction sold for as low as $35.
Local deal hunter Sam Hickenlooper stated regarding the bike sales, “You can generally get them a lot cheaper at a police auction, so I was thinking it would be a good idea to get one here.”
Orem Police stated that proceeds from the auction will go into the city’s general fund, to be used at the city’s discretion for public interest needs.
The police department advises that if you come looking for your own property, then bring a police report or some sort of proof. You may just get it back.
