CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Police Department is auctioning off about 50 cars and trucks that have been abandoned or forfeited to the city.

Beginning at 9 a.m. sharp on Saturday, October 12, police will be auctioning the vehicles off at the Impound Lot #2, located at 4300 Bradley Road in Cleveland, according to a news release from police. The lot will open for viewing at 8 a.m.

Police said the vehicles up for auction include Nissan, Hyundai, Toyota, Ford and more.

All sales are final, police said. None of the vehicles come with a warranty or guarantee. A 10% cash down payment is required for the winning bid, with the remainder due by Oct. 18, 2019.

Monies generated from the sale of forfeited vehicles will go to the Law Enforcement Trust Fund. The fund has been used to purchase items, including body armor and mobile computers and fund investigations, including those involving internet crimes against children.

Monies generated from abandoned vehicles will go to the department’s General Fund.
