A man holds up his ticket to bid on a car at a Toledo Police Department auction in 2015. An auction held Saturday netted more than $97,000.
The Toledo Police Department raised $97,100 on Saturday at an abandoned and forfeited motor vehicle auction.
Of that, $27,400 goes to the Law Enforcement Trust Fund, while the rest goes to the city’s general fund. Eighty-five vehicles were auctioned at the impound lot at 198 Dura Ave., according to the department.
The highest bid was $11,000 for a tow truck, and the lowest was $200 for a motorcycle. The next auction likely will be in June.
