Police seized vehicles to be auctioned


EDINBURG, Texas – Vehicles seized by police will be auctioned this weekend.

County officials say these vehicles have all been seized in the process of a drug bust, arrests, or traffic stops. You can bid on over 100 vehicles, from mid-size to pick up trucks. The auction is open to the public and taking place at the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office grounds in Edinburg. Auction starting at 8:00 a.m. this Saturday, Oct. 19.

All proceeds will go back to the agency who seized the vehicle.

Martha Salazar, Hidalgo County Purchasing Director, “We have been storing them, but we cannot sell them. They’re not considered the county’s vehicle until a court of law actually awards the vehicle to the county and at that point, they are now eligible.”

Interested buyers can preview the items Thursday and Friday by registering online at https://www.amtauctions.com/.
