AG's office to auction seized and forfeited property

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - BY: Tyler Kerch

People looking for great deals and a way to fight crime should head to the Blaisdell center on Saturday.

A public auction of seized and forfeited property to the State of Hawaii will be held on March 28 at noon in the Pikake room at the Neal S. Blaisdell Center 

The auction includes 27 vehicles including a 2010 Nissan Titan pickup truck, a Porsche 911 Carrera, and other vehicles. Other items include generators, jewelry, and electronics, silver and gold collectible coins.

The auction is the result of ongoing efforts by the state and county law enforcement agencies to combat crime by seizing assets and property used or attained in connection with criminal activities. Removing the tools criminals use to commit crimes and the profits from those crimes are ways to discourage and obstruct criminal conduct.

Proceeds from this auction will go to state and county law enforcement agencies to combat crime. All of the assets that were used in or obtained from certain criminal offenses can be rightfully seized and forfeited under the state's asset forfeiture law.

Employees (and the immediate family members) of county police departments, county prosecuting attorney's offices, and the Department of the Attorney General are not eligible to purchase forfeited property.

The auction will be conducted by Rosen Auctions. To see a full list of the property visit www.rosenauctions.com.

Anyone with information about individuals who are profiting from criminal activity should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 955-8300.
