Looking for a used car? The East Grand Forks Police Department is putting 23 vehicles up for sale later this week. The vehicles are surplus models seized through DUI and drug arrests. East Grand Forks Police Chief Mike Hedlund says they range from klunkers to some pretty nice cars. Hedlund says interested buyers can check the models out in person at the police department parking lot starting on Friday. As for the actual sale the p-d is going to try something different this year auctioning them off through the website www.govdeals.com.
Hedlund says under state law the department will be able to capture the bulk of thesaleproceeds. The oldest car on the lot is a1986 Chrysler Park Avenue and the newest model is a 2008 Ford Escort.
