Get a steal of a deal from home with Windsor police auctions online
Bid on bikes, tools, clothes and jewels from the comfort of your own home
Windsor police are making it easier than ever to pick up some pilfered property.
The service is moving its auctions online, through a partnership with Police Auctions Canada and GovDeals.com.
"We make every effort possible to return these lost or stolen items that we've recovered in investigations," explained Const. Andy Drouillard. "But unfortunately that's not always possible. Sometimes people haven't reported them as stolen or there's no serial numbers.
Bidding for lost or stolen bikes, tools, clothes and jewels can now be done from the comfort of your own home.
The online auctions include items from police forces across the province, which Drouillard said should offer bidders a wider selection than ever before.
If you spot a missing item you believe belongs to you while scrolling through the online offerings, Drouillard said it's not too late to save it from the auction block.
"If somebody does locate their property or an item that they've had definitely give us a call and we'll definitely look into that."
