Cleveland police to auction off dozens of vehicles forfeited or abandoned

CLEVELAND - Looking for a new car? On Saturday, Oct. 6 the Cleveland Division of Police will be auctioning off vehicles that have been abandoned or forfeited to the city of Cleveland.

Visitors will find everything from cars and SUVs to dirt bikes and scooters. Approximately 47 vehicles will be up for sale.

The public is invited to the Cleveland Division of Police Impound Lot #2 at 4300 Bradley Rd. in Cleveland. The event will take place rain or shine.

The impound lot will open at 8 a.m. to view the vehicles and the auction will begin at 9 a.m. sharp. All sales are final.

None of the vehicles come with a warranty of guarantee. The winning bidder will need to put 10% cash down and provide the remaining balance within five days.
