Police Department Auctions Off Seized Vehicles
La Joya police auctioned off several vehicles that were seized from criminal arrest to the general public on Friday.
A total of fourteen cars, vans and trucks were sold after police sent out letters to the owners of the vehicles, but never received a reply from them. They were put on display to be sold to the public and the police department collected nearly $20,000 dollars from the auction. The department is planning on using the money to purchase new equipment and uniforms.
